Students kick off in aid of Sport Relief
PUPILS at Yate’s Brimsham Green School raised more than £2,000 for Sport Relief through a World Cup challenge.
The 500 students embarked on a Run to Russia sponsored event to collectively run, walk or jog a total of 1,911 miles - the distance from Bristol to Moscow.
They were inspired by the forthcoming World Cup, to be hosted by Russia, and each pupil took time out on three mornings to add to the total covered.
The school also held its own version of the football tournament, with year 11 football and netball teams playing the PE staff.
Sport Relief is run to raise money to support vulnerable people across the UK and around the world.
