Friends of Benton Park Fun Run

Sunday saw the 3rd annual Benton Park Fun Run. It was really well supported and we were certainly helped by the good weather!

A special thank you to the friends for organising the event but especially Molly Hogg who did perhaps the lions share! The prizes were excellent and over £200 has been raised.

Well done to all finishers! And a special mention to Milly the first current BP pupil home!

Below are some highlights..

All the students and families who came to run, cheer or help’

And those of us who were there and took part would like to thank her and her team of helpers. All events have to have somebody who drives it! And she steered the ship very well.

Last Sunday many children and their families took part in the Benton Park Fun Run! Well actually 87 children to be precise! What a great effort by the children, their families and of course the Organisers.

It was a smashing day.
