Marshland High School Pink Ladies will be tackling King’s Lynn Park Run for charity

Marshland High School’s hockey squad – The Pink Ladies is at it again this Saturday when they take on the King’s Lynn Park Run for their annual charity fundraiser.

All Marshland pupils and staff recognise the need to be active for their well-being but the pupils are not running this event for themselves.

Instead, they will be lacing up their running shoes for a worthy cause.

The Pink Ladies handed over £3,878 to the Angles Theatre in Wisbech after completing their annual charity run.

Over the last seven years the Pink Ladies, who play hockey for their school against others in the county, have raised thousands for local charities and good causes – from supporting national charities such as McMillan, Cancer Research, and the NSPCC.

In more recent times they have concentrated on more local charities including supporting a fellow pupil with cancer, the Fenland women’s refuge, and the Angles Theatre.

The Wisbech theatre, the only surviving one in Fenland, is once again the recipient of this year’s fundraising effort – last year the team raised £3,878 for it.

Paul Swinburn, head of PE at Marshland and former international hockey player said: “I am ultra proud of these girls, who year after year give their time and effort for helping others – we even have some older Pink Ladies hockey players who come back to run with us, as is the case this year. The hockey players are proud of their school and proud to come together to support charity work.”

Eaden Nunnerley, captain of one of the Pink Ladies hockey teams said “ It means a lot to be able to support a good local cause, I know this run will be a challenge for a lot of us but we will complete it as team.”

The school would love people to go along on Saturday (6) to cheer the girls on as they complete the run.
