More than 600 primary school pupils have sprinted around their school field in aid of Cancer Research UK.
The youngsters, aged three to 11, were taking part in a special Race for Life event at St Bartholomew’s Primary School, in Armley, which was organised by Year Six teacher Kattie Bucktrout and overseen by headteacher Pauline Gavin OBE.
Members of the community also got involved yesterday, as pupils went on short runs and enjoyed a gala featuring facepainting, bouncy castles and stalls during a day which raised more than £1,500.
Ms Bucktrout said: “It’s totally exceeded expectations. I thought it was going to be a little event but, with all the parents and carers, it’s been fantastic.”
