KIND-HEARTED pupils from a Bradford school and their parents raised more than £300 by taking part in a sponsored walk for children in Kenya.

Children from Fearnville Primary School, Fearnville Drive, Tyersal, took part in a sponsored walk/run to raise money for vulnerable children in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

Children from nursery aged up to year six, aged 11, their parents and the teachers were sponsored as they walked, jogged and ran around school.

The group raised the cash for the Eating Stones Fund, a UK-based charity which supports several projects in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, on poverty reduction.

The Fearnville Primary School children also completed laps of the course, proudly carrying the Olympic Torch.

Daniel Cassidy, PE teacher from Fearnville Primary School, praised those who took part in the sponsored walk event.

He said: "It was a great event which had a lovely feel to it.

"All the wider school community took part and it was a joy to see the youngest children, oldest children, parents and staff being brought together through the love of sport and raising money for a needy cause."
