A SPONSORED run by schoolchildren raised more than £5,000 for kids battling for health.
Pupils, staff and parents at Listerdale Junior Academy were sponsored to complete as many laps of the field as possible in 40 minutes — and brought in an impressive £5,135.20 for the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity.
David Simpson, Listerdale’s principal, said: “We are a school of only 300 pupils, so to raise this amount of money in one go is staggering.
“We have a number of children who have had need of Sheffield Children’s Hospital’s expertise at some time and we thought it would be a good way to give something back.
“Who knows which of us might have need of their specialist care in the future? A big thank yougoes out to everyone who contributed.”
