Academy holds record fundraising event

26th April 2018

Sport Relief 2018At the back end of March, Wainwright Primary Academy supported Sport Relief 2018 with our pupils taking part in a sponsored mile, with record-breaking results.

Each year group ran a mile around the perimeter of the academy site, with our pupils joined by staff and members of the academy PTA for the run. The event was brilliant, with all of the participants having a great time, getting some exercise, promoting healthy lifestyles, and importantly raising a lot of money for a very worthwhile cause.

The final total of the sponsorship money was a staggering £1192.01 – this huge amount is a record fundraising total for any event held at the academy. We are so grateful to everyone who sponsored and gave their money to this cause and can’t thank you enough.

On the day, awards were also handed out for the best dress up outfit, fastest mile and the most sponsor money raised. We must say a big thank you to local businesses who provided prizes, including Smyths, Beales, Claire’s Accessories, Carousel sweet shop and Mansfield Town Football Club.
