Rockin' around the Playing Fields

Rockin' around the Playing Fields

The sun shone, and most importantly the rain held off, for the Centenary Colour Fun Run held on the playing fields on Saturday 8th December. After a terrific warm up with Mr Silman to ‘Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree’, Alison Hooker from Helen & Douglas House told parents about the charity’s aim to raise £3 million a year in order to provide respite care for children and support for their families. Then donning their commemorative T-shirts, over 180 children from Nursery to Year 8 charged around the 1.2 mile course becoming increasingly covered in a palette of rainbow powder paint thrown by staff. Refreshments were then served in the Pavillion with hot chocolate with squirty cream and delicious shortbread biscuits going down a storm and served by our ever cheery housekeeping staff. Huge thanks to Mrs Warren for all her help, to the Gardens and Grounds staff for marking out the course, to the School Office for taking t-shirt orders and to Marketing for ordering them.

The Virgin Money donations page remains live ( and all monies will be split equally between Helen & Douglas House and Katharine House Hospice.  

A fantastic event and great team effort all round.
