Keep on running

A squad from St Cuthbert’s Catholic School joined over 2,000 other runners to take part in the 8th St Helens 10K.

The StCuthberts4Precky team, which included both current and past students and staff, as well as headteacher Catherine Twist, took on the event to raise funds for the school’s Student Wellbeing Fund and The Steve Prescott Foundation.

Headteacher, Catherine Twist said: “The support and donations we have received so far from colleagues, parents, friends and family have been fantastic.

“As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of St Cuthbert’s this year, by entering a team for the St Helens 10K we thought it would be an ideal opportunity to raise the school’s profile and share our message with the rest of the town.

“We are passionate about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and by involving ourselves in this event we continue to embrace this ethos as a whole community and leading by example.

“I don’t remember reading this in the job description when I applied for the role of headteacher! A huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far and helped us raise over £2,000; it will make a difference to our causes”.

It’s not too late to donate to the team fundraising page. If you’d like to donate, please visit the school’s JustGiving page here:
