Bartons Primary School sponsored walk
On Wednesday 23 March the children of Bartons Primary School, North Bersted, took part in a sponsored walk in aid of Southampton Hospital Charity.
Every child and adult in the school donned their walking shoes and set out on five laps around the park area near the school. For some children it was a real challenge while others were ready to do more.
The charity was chosen as the daughter of one of the teachers, Mrs Oakley, has had extensive treatment by the wonderful staff in the neurological ward there. Some of the children and siblings have also been treated there so it was felt to be a very worthwhile charity.
The children are going to be busy collecting money over the holidays and it is hoped that a substantial amount will be raised.
