Tunbridge Wells Sacred Hearts are beating faster after races
by Andy Tong | 21st December 2018
PUPILS, parents and members of staff from the Beechwood Sacred Heart community combined to take on the rigours of the Crowborough 5K and 10K runs in aid of the Tunbridge Wells school’s chosen charities.
A total of 19 runners raised more than £300 for Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex, Childline and CAFOD [the Catholic Agency For Overseas Development].
Lucinda Coakley, the school’s registrar, said: “For many it was the first time attempting these distances – and a massive effort on one of the toughest road races in the area. Palesgate Lane was certainly a challenge for all!
“Thinking about how we could raise money for the school charities, our teacher Rebecca Smith managed to convince the team to run.
“We are incredibly proud of the whole -Beechwood team and it was a fantastically well organised event.”
