On Friday 10th July we were due to hold a fun day at Consett Rugby Club, this has now been postponed due to the Covid pandemic and we can no longer raise money in the way we had planned. We had hoped for all children to take part in a fun run around the field and those who are more energetic would run from Rowley back to the Rugby Club.
After this event we had arranged for lots stalls, music, entertainment and much more to complete the event until mid evening. It is really disheartening that this can be no more, especially as it was for our chosen charity ‘If U Care Share’.
BUT!!!! Yesterday we contacted those families who were going to take part in the 5k Rowley to the Rugby Club run to see if they would still like to do this as a final bid to reach our total of £1,500. Many families are still going to do this and we hoped many more would also like to do the same.
We have amended the charity link to incorporate that more of our CJS families are going to compete in their own 5k fun run. Please take part too…you can run or walk and you can do any 5k route you would like and on any day before Friday 17th July. You can submit your evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org which can be photographs, videos and screenshots from a fitness device.
We have also been informed that Dylan H from Year 3 and his younger sister Hollie have set their own challenge of doing ONE million steps before they go back to school in September! Dylan said he wanted to raise money for the charity that school were raising money, If U Care Share. It’s such a shame the fun day can’t go ahead so they thought this would be a good way to add a little bit extra. They have set up a seperate Just Giving page, and we have no doubt that they’ll smash their challenge!
