PUPILS from a local school donned pink clothing and put their best foot forward to join thousands of others around the country in doing the Race For Life.

Despite torrential rainfall English teacher Heather Barker from Fyling Hall school and year ten pupils Rosie Havelock, Sophie Kelly, Katie Owen, Nicole Lennon and Stephanie Byford completed the course in Scarborough on Sunday.

The previous Friday there was a pink non-uniform day at the school in Robin Hood’s Bay. Pupils donated money to the cause and those who weren’t wearing pink were asked to pay double.

Mrs Barker also organised a pink cake sale.

In total the school managed to raise over £500 with more sponsorship money still to come in.

Headteacher Ken James, who also donned pink for the day, said: “The pupils, staff and parents have really gone to town to help this worthwhile charity.

“I’ve never seen the school looking quite so colourful.”
