Children skipped, danced or ran a three-legged race to help raise more than £1,000 for Sport Relief.

As part of the nation-wide charity event, pupils arrived at Great Easton Primary School on Friday dressed in their best sporting clothes and armed with freshly baked cakes.

At playtime a cake sale was held with all proceeds going to the cause, and after play they ran their mile.

Overall, with the help of the bake sale, non-uniform day and the run, the school raised more than £1,000 – an incredible effort for 147 pupils.

An extra £400 of sponsorship was raised when four pupils swam the Sport Relief Mile at Great Dunmow Leisure Centre swimming pool.

Holly Miles, PE coordinator, said: “Well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you to parents for baking so many yummy cakes. Our money will make a real difference to the children and families in the UK and Africa.”

More than £51m was raised on Friday’s live BBC Sport Relief show, beating the record £50.4m raised during the last show two years ago.The fundraising continued across the country over the weekend in a bid to break the 2012 overall total of £67.9m.

Money raised will go towards helping people living tough lives both in the UK and around the world.
