The Juniors at Towers Convent School took part in a reindeer run to raise money for Chestnut Tree House, a local charity which provides care, support and fun for children, who are terminally ill. The juniors all dressed up in antlers and flashing noses to run a mile around the tennis courts.
The children collected stamps on a reindeer picture to count their laps: To cover a mile, 11 laps were required. Father Christmas made a surprise appearance, very kindly taking time off from his Christmas preparations to visit The Towers!
Pupils and staff were equally impressed with the event. A school representative explained: “Everyone had great fun and we raised £700.50 for Chestnut Tree House.”
