Parents and staff joined the pupils of Lundin Mill Primary School recently to hop, skip, jump - and even space hop - around the school grounds.

The energetic 1km circuit was for Race for Life, in aid of Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. Over 120 people took part with children ranging from Primary 1 to Primary 7.

The whole school supported the event real team effort whilst raising money for a good cause. Anne Urquhart, headteacher said: “A huge thank you to the group of parents who organised the event.

“We have special reasons for taking part in the Race this year, as well as wanting to give back to the community.

“This has also been a great addition to our curriculum, encouraging pupils to run, walk and keep fit.”

Rachel Carr, head of Race for Life, said: “Young people today are the generation who could see ground-breaking treatments and cures for cancer in their lifetime. They will be the researchers and lifesavers of tomorrow. But first, we need them to be the fundraisers of today – and walk, jog and run to help beat cancer sooner.”
