Run to the North Pole

Josh Lockwood from Bovey Tracey Primary School organised an event to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity which is very close to the hearts of himself and his family.

Each child had to run as many laps of a specially designed course as possible in order to cover the distance to the North Pole.

Children were given the opportunity to raise sponsorship money to do this for the charity.  Despite some awful weather a huge amount was raised and the event was a great success – well done Josh!

The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain cancer and helps the lives of people with a brain tumour and their families. More details at
