Pupils show support for marathon

SCHOOl children on Moreton Hall have run a mini-marathon in support of a member of staff who will run in Sunday’s London Marathon.

Sue Lewis, business manager at Abbots Green Community Primary School, in Airfield Road, applied for the marathon three times before her application for this year’s event was accepted.

On Friday, Abbots Green pupils, their parents and staff ran 220 laps around the school field, the equivalent distance of the 26 mile marathon.

Sue, 51, said: “It’s a bit like sitting an exam, you feel apprehensive but you know you have done all the preparation you can and just hope that it goes well.”

She hopes to raise £1,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care and the RAF Benevolent Fund.
