Over 200 Junior Boys at Bolton School will raise thousands of pounds for four charities, chosen by the pupils themselves, after a fancy dress fun run. Headteacher Mrs Sue Faulkner said: “The charities, which are BAND (Building a New Direction), The British Lung Foundation, The Alzheimer’s Society and The World Wildlife Fund, represent a great range of worthy causes, both locally and nationally. The event allows boys to unwind after a week of exams but it is also instructive in that the boys are made to think of others and to consider ways in which we can make a difference to our community.” 

The money was raised as boys circuited the running track on the Senior School playing fields. Working in pairs, the boys from all age groups (Yrs3-6), completed as many laps as they could, encouraged by parents and family and accompanied by members of the teaching staff. The annual event raises in the region of £7,000-£10,000 per annum. As ever, there was a good range of colourful costumes on display with perennial favourites such as Batman, Harry Potter, Superman and Spiderman joined by several Mo Salah’s this year as well as a large inflatable dinosaur, Sumo wrestlers, Captain Americas and Hulks.
