Big-hearted Harrogate kids raise funds for Children's Heart Surgery Fund
A prep school in Harrogate raised nearly Â£7,000 for Leeds-based charity the Children's Heart Surgery Fund.
Teachers, parents and pupils Belmont Grosvenor School took part in a range of fund-raising activities, including a sponsered “Race to Rio” which saw youngsters swim and run the 5,761 miles to Brazil before the Olympics.
Each year, the school picks a charity to support.
Parents chose the CHSF after drama teacher Catherine Fearn’s two-year-old nephew Jack Hartley and former nursery assistant Lottie Haggas underwent life-saving surgery at Leeds General Infirmary.
During the past two years, the school has raised almost £11,000 for CHSF.
