Run to Tokyo – Fundraiser

St Mary’s Summer Challenge for Bristol Children’s Hospital

When children found out that one of our youngest pupils had spent much of this school year in hospital, they decided to do something to make a difference.

Poppy should have joined us in September but due to a complex heart condition has needed to spend time in Bristol Children’s Hospital.

So, this summer our whole school is running our daily mile with more energy and focus to try to cover the 6,000 miles from our St Mary’s in Axminster to the Olympic stadium in Tokyo.  Later in the term we also hope to hold a sponsored bounce with a plan to raise as much money as possible.

We are all really pleased that it looks as though Poppy will be able to join us next September and that she has had excellent care in Bristol.

We will let you know how many miles and how much money has been raised later in the term.
