Pupils at Maidwell Hall in Northamptonshire tackled an extreme obstacle course to raise money for the James Wentworth-Stanley Memorial Fund. The whole school ran together over a variety of obstacles, including mountainous hay bales, the Maidwell Maze and a tyre tunnel. The sun shone while pupils, parents and teachers put themselves to the test over this challenging course. Pupils were thrilled to have raised money for their chosen charity.
Headmaster Robert Lankester commented, ‘This was a really fun day and an original way to fund-raise for this very worthwhile charity. It was great to see pupils, parents and staff coming together and encouraging each other over this very challenging course. Those who didn’t take part did an excellent job of cheering everyone on!’
Maidwell Hall has an excellent track record in fundraising for a variety of worthwhile causes. Every year the school chooses a different charity to raise money for. The chosen charity of 2017, Elifar, were delighted to be presented by the school with a cheque for £81,000 at the end of the year.
