Nearly £1,500 has been raised to help a Preston school.


Grimsargh St Michael’s Church of England primary school recently held a colour run in its grounds.


A 2.5km running circuit was set up with obstacles for children and families to tackle.

More than 100 people took part in the run which started with a warm-up session delivered by personal trainers from sponsors Diverse Gym.

A total of £1,415.70 was raised which will be put into resource and activities for the children at the school via the PTFA.

Grimsargh St. Michael’s Deputy Headmistress, Miss Smith, who opened proceedings on the day, said: “We were incredibly lucky with the weather after a week of torrential rain and were delighted with what a success the day was. The children had a great deal of fun, all whilst keeping fit and healthy which as a Gold School Games School, is incredibly important to us.

“The money raised from this, and other events organised by the PTFA, will go towards a variety of activities that our children will benefit from. I am grateful, as ever, to our active PTFA for all their hard work in pulling off what was another successful event.”

PTFA Committee Member, Deb Jacques, said: “The Colour Run would not have been possible without the help of the parents, family and teachers who supported us with the planning preparation and delivery of the event. We loved seeing how much the children enjoyed themselves, and we hope to be able to run the event again next year.”
