A team of determined school children from Beccles completed a 5K obstacle course to raise almost £1,000 for those battling cancer.

Six girls from Albert Pye Community Primary School’s Year 6 class took part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life Pretty Muddy in Norwich last month.

In total the youngsters; Rosie, Charlotte, Sophie, Tilly, Violet and Gabby, managed to raise £860 for the charity.

They said: “It was a 5K run with muddy obstacles at different points along the way.

“There were pools of mud, nets to crawl under, an elasticated maze, hurdles to climb over whilst carrying mud and a giant slide into a huge mud pool.

“Many people from all over the country took part in several different races.”

They added: “We all enjoyed this race very much and it was an amazing experience. We hope to do it next year and we are also encouraging others to do it too.”
