Splash the teacher!

Fun event in Honiton supports Sport Relief

PUPILS and staff at Honiton Primary School are racing ahead in their efforts to support this year’s Sport Relief fund-raiser.

As well as entering a team in the Sport Relief Mile, organised by Honiton Running Club, the school has enjoyed ‘lunchtime laughter’ and now a ‘splash the teacher’ event.

All this March madness has been conjured up to raise cash for worthy causes - and raise a smile.

Teachers got a soaking at the school today (Thursday).

All the events have been enthusiastically organised by teacher Sam Ayres. So far, �160 has been raised.

Teacher Gilly Hancock said: “The children have never enjoyed a charity event so much!”

Honiton’s Sport Relief Mile is taking place on Sunday, March 25, and is open to everyone.
