Primary school ‘marafun’ raises money for PTA’s Covid Response Fund


Pupils from Nightingale Primary School have raised £2,200 for the PTA’s Covid Response Fund by taking part in a team ‘marafun’ challenge.

“Over the course of two weekends, each class worked as a team to complete a marathon between them. Armed with their personal trackers, they walked, hopped and skipped their way around Redbridge,” said a PTA spokesperson.

Together the children covered 842km, with the money raised paying for vouchers for school families hit hard by the pandemic.

The event was sponsored by local business North London Loft Rooms
