Fundraisers go extra mile for Sport Relief

Students and staff went the extra mile to show their support for this year's national Sport Relief fundraising campaign.

A Sport Relief Mile, cross-bar challenge, lip-sync competition, cake decorating and staff football and netball matches were among the activities hosted by the school.

Their efforts have helped to raise more than £200 for the cause.

Sport Relief is a charity event organised through Comic Relief and run every two years in association with BBC Sport. The event brings together the worlds of sport and entertainment to raise tens of millions of pounds to help vulnerable people in the UK and across the world. 

Mrs L.Corbett, Highfields' Community Engagement Officer, said: "Highfields is justifiably proud of the support that students, parents and staff give to both national and local charities, raising thousands of pounds each year.

"It was great to see so many people getting involved in the activities we put on to support the worthy Sport Relief campaign."
