Pupils and staff at Boston High School hopped, skipped, walked and dunked teachers with water to raise thousands of pounds for charity.

The entire school took part in the event in the school grounds, raising £7,783 for Cancer Research UK.

Staff got into the spirit of the day - donning pink to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

The three distances of 1km, 3km and 5km saw participants either running, walking, hopping or even going three-legged. They were prepared with a warm-up session by an RAF instructor.

Deputy head teacher Wendy Costin said the day was ‘fantastic’, with the school transformed into a ‘sea of pink’ for the event.

“The sun shone and the atmosphere was superb,” she said. “It really personified what Boston High School is about – values and working together.”

Students organised the event – and opened various fundraising stalls, with ‘dunk the teacher’ being especially popular. There was also live music from the house band.
