Pupils and staff at an Ashington school put on their running shoes to raise money to help the fight against cancer.

Year 3 teacher Kathryn Thompson, who organised the event at the Ashington primary, part of the Northumberland Church of England Academy, said: “The Thomas Bewick Campus regularly takes part in charitable events, but this was our first charity run.

“We completed a whole school assembly about the Race for Life and it was met with great enthusiasm by the children.

“Most people are affected by cancer during some part of their lives and a lot of the children have been sponsored by friends and family.

“We hope the money raised helps the battle to beat cancer.”
