Sports mad youngsters took part in the Race for Life to help raise funds to aid Cancer Research UK.

Pupils at Oakham CofE Primary School took part in a sponsored run round the school field.

Headteacher Steve Cox said: “Cancer is something which touches most people’s lives.

“The pupils loved it and they were being quite competitive. I am very proud of them and I hope that we have raised a lot of money for a worthwhile cause.

“We did the Race for Life last year too.”

The school, on Burley Road, in Oakham, also held its summer fete on the same day.

There was a host of activities including welly wrangling.
