Fun Run In Aid Of Charity
A group of runners from Stamford School pounded the streets of Peterborough on the 9th October during the Perkins Great Eastern Run 2011.
The boys – Ollie Dore, Adam Richardson, Joe Rome, Alistair Bourne (all Year 7) Owen Davies, Eliot Siggs (Year 8), Sam Leedham and Thomas Noble (Year 9) - took part in the 4k fun run in aid of Anna’s hope; a Stamford based charity which helps children and young people with brain tumours. Teacher of English Lorna Blisset and Alistair’s father Stephen Bourne took part in the gruelling 13.1 mile half marathon. The runners are still totting up the total amount of money raised.
The boys felt very proud to run for Anna’s hope, as one – Eliot Siggs – said; “I really enjoyed the run, especially as I raised money for a great charity. I’m now looking forward to taking part in the Santa Fun Run in December for another worthy cause.”
