Over two hundred junior school boys from Bolton School will raise thousands of pounds after their charity fancy dress fun run. The sun shone for the fundraiser, which took place on the sports field of Bolton School, as boys paired up to take turns running laps whilst dressed up in a wide range of imaginative costumes. Monies raised will be split amongst four charities chosen by the boys: Derian House, Cash4Kids (Manchester), Parkinsons UK and Dementia UK. An on the day bucket collection for families affected by the Manchester atrocity raised a further £500. 

Head of the Junior Boys’ School, Mrs Sue Faulkner, takes up the story: “The Charity Fun Run is always a highlight of the school year with the boys planning their costumes for months in advance. This year the boys chose which charities they would support through their Houses and we were delighted to see that they had settled on such a range of worthy causes, each with their own personal story behind them. As a school, our boys are very lucky indeed and it is good that they are keen to think of others and to consider the ways in which we can make a difference to our community.

“This year we were blessed with glorious weather for the event which meant that we were cheered on by a large crowd of parents and other family members. This is always a very colourful and exciting afternoon, and this year was no exception. The variety of costumes on show was quite entertaining, ranging from a number of famous footballers, to cowboys and even a couple of dinosaurs. 

“With the fun now over, the boys will of course set upon the business of collecting in the money pledged for the event and we look forward to presenting cheques to our chosen charities before the end of term.”
