Pupils take on marathon challenge to raise money for cardiac charity

Pupils at Eden Boys’ School, Preston have put their best foot forward in a running challenge to raise money for charity.
Year 7 and 8 pupils at the Adelaide Street school pulled on their trainers to take part in a treadmill marathon. They were assisted in organising the event by Year 10 pupils taking part in the school’s National Citizen Service (NCS), a government-led social development programme for 15-17 year olds, which aims to help young people achieve their potential and build bridges between communities.
Pupils ran more than 100 miles to raise £680 for the British Heart Foundation.
Alyson Middlemass, Principal of Eden Boys’ School, Preston, said: “These pupils are a credit to the school and each and every one should be congratulated.
“It has been superb to see them working so hard to raise money for such a worthy cause and to see them displaying such great teamwork.”
