Brimington Manor Infant and Nursery School

Children at Brimington Manor Infant and Nursery School near Chesterfield in Derbyshire raised an incredible £2,080 by taking part in a sponsored skip.

“Family, friends and neighbours donated for every jump the child completed in two minutes,” says headteacher Kathryn Fretwell, “and we were bowled over by all the money that came in.

Parents and children have always been generous here, but this year we decided to do even more to raise money for this worthwhile cause. This is by far the biggest amount we’ve raised since we first began raising money for World Cancer Research Fund eight years ago.

The following day at school was designated ‘Fruity Friday’, with all the children asked to dress in fruity colours or in fruit-themed fancy dress. The children also learnt about the benefits of healthy eating and tasted different types of fruit.
