Schoolchildren support #BuildTheNest campaign
Ahead of the Foundation’s upcoming Run Norwich event, over 1,000 local schoolchildren laced up their trainers to raise funds for the charity’s #BuildTheNest campaign.
The youngsters were challenged to take part in a sponsored run around the newly laid pitches at The Nest, the Foundation’s recently developed community hub.
The event has raised over £6,500 which will support the second phase of The Nest project.
Gyles Longhurst Head of Frettenham Primary School attended the event. He said:
“It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to get involved and see what their efforts were going towards. They now can’t wait until we can go back and use the facilities for school sports. “
Joe Harvey said:
“A huge well done from me to all the pupils who ran, walked or skipped around the track to complete as many laps as they could, and to the staff for their encouragement and joining in.”
