Students’ Sports Relief Mile raises more than £500

Students from Glyne Gap special needs school donned droopy moustaches and curly wigs to take part in their annual fundraising event for Sports Relief.

The theme for the school’s Sports Relief mile this year was ‘118-118’, based on the directory enquiry characters.

Those who took part in the event started at the Angling Club at Galley Hill and made their way to the De La Warr Pavilion, where refreshments were provided. A school spokesperson said everyone who took part, whether on foot or in wheelchairs, gave it their all and got into the spirit of the event, adding: “There were a lot of droopy moustaches and dodgy wigs! All of our students gave it 100 per cent and we are very proud of them all! So far we have raised £500 and the total is still rising. “
