Prep Teachers Run for Cancer Research
On 5th February, nine teachers from Bancroft's Prep School joined 16,500 other runners to take part in Cancer Research UK's London Winter Run.
Mr Layburn, Mrs Life, Miss Ellery, Miss Phelps, Mrs Moore, Mrs Hewitt, Mr Hall, Mrs Sylvester and myself battled the cold, early morning start to join in what is hailed as the capital’s largest 10km run. To keep our spirits up we were treated to a snow blast off, ‘Penguin Party’, a Swiss themed water station and live music along the course. As we crossed the finish line we were greeted by a team of polar bears who awarded us with our fabulous winter medals. We are proud that we raised over £1620 for Cancer Research, thanks to donations from teachers, parents, family and friends. This team effort meant that we could embark on a new challenge, whilst raising money to beat cancer sooner. Well done everyone!
