Amazing amount raised for MacMillan by Primary 5

Primary 5 would like to thank everyone who has already donated to our Out Run May event last month.  Our total so far (including gift aid) is £970!  This is an incredible amount and a lot more than our initial target of £204.

The class all did really well, running their mile(s) a day in all weather and our best class time was shaved from 11 minutes 90 seconds to an amazing 7 minutes 15 seconds (well done Archie).

We were even featured in the advertiser (is anyone has a spare copy can you let Mrs Hinton have it please?) and on their web page! http://www.midlothianadvertiser.co.uk/news/local-news/loanhead-pupils-keep-on-running-1-4141332

Well done!

P.S It is not too late to donate.  We will have a final total for MacMillan next week when one of their volunteers can hopefully come to visit the class. DONATE NOW
