Sunday Morning Half Marathon For Mary's Meals

Staff were joined by OP Tom Pilling for this year's half marathon for Mary's Meals.

OP Tom Pilling joined Princethorpe staff, Rod Isaacs, Cyp Vella, Andy Compton, Ellie Callan, Clare White and Ben Collie at the end of January to pound the pavements and paths around Leamington and Warwick in a half marathon in January. The hardy runners were fundraising for a charity close to Princethorpe's heart, Mary's Meals. They all completed the challenge successfully although there were a few sore knees the next day.

Mary's Meals provides daily meals in a place of learning, with just £15.90 feeding a child for a whole year. Through Mary's Meals, Princethorpe College supports Makalanga Primary School in Malawi, raising the funds to feed their 600 children every day. Pupils and staff take part in activities such as World Porridge Day and the 24/7 challenge to raise money for the charity.

For their next fundraising challenge pupils and staff will be taking on the Coventry 40 mile walk.
