Healthy pupils at Thomas Eaton Primary School have raised more than £300 for the British Heart Foundation.

The youngsters took part in a sponsored skipathon, with 20 per cent of the money going to the school and the remaining £315.22 going to the heart charity.

A special prize was awarded to six-year-old Bobby Wood, who raised a massive £55 by himself.

Jump Rope For Heart is a fun educational fundraising programme set up by the British Heart Foundation 27 years ago. It was designed to help children skip their way to health.

Over 25,000 schools and youth groups have signed up to the event since it started. It is a great way to raise money for the school or group and the charity’s lifesaving work.
