Staff and children from Brownsover Community School put on their walking shoes to help two worthy causes.

It was part of Farm House Breakfast Week and involved a 5k walk for Cancer Research UK and Farm Africa.

Students walked a kilometre per day and have raised more than £500.

Early years pupils took part in Welly Walk for Africa, with funds going to help farmers feed their families and educate their children.

Karen Crane, community liaison and teaching assistant, said: “Each morning 120 children were joined by staff, parents and carers and we walked a measured route. By later in the week we had neighbours waving from their windows. Even the park rangers from Rugby Borough Council and the PCSOs joined us.”

The children ate croissants donated by Tesco Express in Brownsover after completing the challenge.
