Kinderley Primary School completed another of their Red Arrows Challenges to raise money and awareness of mental health.

The Tydd St Giles school runs a scheme called "the sky is not a limit, it is just the beginning".

It was born from the Red Arrows and Typhoon pilots recording video messages for the school to help motivate the children.

As a result the school as joined forces with the red arrows where the pilots have taken school assemblies to talk about the importance of teamwork, trying their best and having a never give up attitude. The children continue to be extremely inspired by them.

As well as setting themselves individual challenges, the children and staff joined forces to walk the equal distance from Tydd St Giles to RAF Coningsby (home of the Typhoon Pilots) and to RAF Scampton (the home of the red arrows)

They completed the walk and raised over £900 which has been split between the nursery, the school and for mental health, which will allow the support dog to visit the school.

Lara Gourley, teaching assistant who helped launch the scheme in October 2018, said: "I am really proud of what the children have achieved, not just because they all pulled together, but the children have a huge awareness of mental health, they realise how important it is to look after their mental health and help to look after each other."
