Over £4000 Raised By Pupils and Staff at Half Marathon

Don’t give up getting to the start
No course change, nor road works, nor fog, nor flood, could deter our Felsted Half Marathon Team from running for our Whole School Charities on Sunday (and that’s before we mention the fact that they had to swap the entire marathon location and set off before 6am!).  Three Sixth Form pupils, Martha (U6), Julia (L6) and Tawana (L6) were running their first ever half marathon distance for The Felsted Mission Night Shelter, The Sparkle Foundation and CHESS Homeless in Chelmsford, they were joined by 10 members of staff who were raising awareness and money for the other Felsted Whole School Charities: Farleigh Hospice, Young Minds, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, Young Minds and Teach Uganda. Given the challenges of simply getting to the start line, they must have tied the laces of their running shoes wondering if any other surprises might befall them but in the end they only encountered great team spirit, friendly competition (with perhaps a few PBs) and enthusiastic crowds.  

How can I help?
Please help our team continue to raise funds so that we can make a difference for children, young people and those most in need both locally and around the world.

Thank you

God bless,
