Fazakerley and Walton schools raise money for Children in Need

Staff from seven schools in the Fazakerley and Walton areas took part in a sponsored run for Children in Need.
The imaginatively named ‘The School Run’ took a basic route just over eight miles and incorporated each school along the route.

Neil Mattocks, higher level teaching assistant and Children in Need school run organiser at Barlows Primary School, said: “As we arrived at each school, we were joined by some of the children who ran a lap or two of their school grounds with us. So although, the basic route was just over eight miles, we actually ran 11.5 miles!

“The children and staff at each school lined their school grounds and cheered us on. It was the second time we had ran this course, having run it previously for Children in Need in 2018.

“After 2018’s success, I asked the schools if they would like to take part again and everyone was really keen to do it again.

“So far we have raised just over £1000 for Children in Need. It’s a really good way for the schools to come together and the support we got from each school was absolutely tremendous.

“We are all ready looking forward to this year’s run!”

The schools involved were: Bank View High School; Barlows Primary School; Fazakerley High School; Fazakerley Primary School; Longmoor Community Primary School; Northcote Primary School and Rice Lane Primary School.
