Burbage school mud larks raise money for Cancer Research UK

BEFORE: this is how they left home...BEFORE: this is how they left home...Year 6 pupils at Burbage Primary School took part in the ‘Pretty Muddy Kids Race for Life’ held by Cancer Research UK at Lydiard Park, Swindon last Saturday (May 19).


The five kilometres long obstacle course was designed to get the kids as muddy as possible. All part of the fun was crawling through the mud pit, scrambling over the A-frame and dealing with the ‘wrecking ball.’ 

And valuable funds for Cancer Research UK have been raised in the process.  So far the Burbage team have raised nearly £1,000. They hope to raise even more by donning their muddy clothes and finisher’s medals in school this week for a repeat performance.

 

AFTER: ...and this is how they went home!AFTER: ...and this is how they went home!

The idea to participate in ‘Pretty Muddy Kids Race for Life’ came from the Year 6 pupils themselves, who saw it as a fun, inspiring and worthwhile way to mark the end of their primary school journey together. 

All the children participating will move on to secondary school at the end of the summer.

The children received huge cheers from spectators as they completed the challenge on Saturday morning, crossing the finishing line together as a team somewhat muddier than when they started!

Emma Butler is a parent of one of the team members and Chair of Governors at Burbage Primary School: “We’re really lucky to have such fantastic, inspirational children. They undoubtedly enjoyed getting muddy on Saturday morning, and they showed great team spirit and support for each other throughout the race too."

"They are all moving on to secondary school in September, but they will take their great friendship with them.”
