Sharp Lane Primary School fun run and other events

On Thursday 11 July 2019, Sharp Lane Primary School did a fun run to raise money for Wheatfield’s Hospice. Lily and Rosie Stephenson, 2 girls who attend the school, have been raising money, with family and friends, to support the hospice.

The Stephenson Family have been raising money in a variety of ways since the end of 2018 when their Dad unfortunately passed away following his battle with melanoma (a type of skin cancer). Lily and Rosie have completed many tasks to raise money including; bucket shaking at Morrison’s with two very close friends, Alicia Chan and Abigayle Hill. In addition to this, Lily and her cousin, Abbie, cut their hair. Lily had 23cm cut off and Abbie had around 28cm cut off! This was to raise money for the Little Princess Trust, who make wigs for girls who have cancer and have unfortunately lost their hair.

Thursday 11 July saw Sharp Lane Primary School complete a sponsored fun run to help raise money for Wheatfields Hospice. All children from Year 1 to Year 6 completed the run and were challenged to raise as much money as they possibly could. The day was a great success, with all pupils completing the run and at the end of the day, the first count for sponsorship money stood at £1,646! Over the course of the following week, more sponsor money came into school and by Monday 22 July 2019, the total stood at a staggering £2,724.11 … a truly amazing achievement.










The Stephenson Family are extremely thankful for the support that they have received during the fun run and would like to thank everyone for their participation.
