Wellies on for a walk

Sunday, December 7, 2014 - 8:02

CHILLERTON and Rookley Primary School pupils donned their wellies for a sponsored walk in aid of an Isle of Wight church.
They took a three-mile country walk from school to St Olave’s Church, Gatcombe — which is raising funds for toilet and kitchen facilities — where they stopped for squash and biscuits.
Acting headteacher Gina Owrid said: "The pre-school children joined in too, they walked a shorter route because they only have little legs. It was a proper wet-weather walk along the footpaths. They enjoyed being out in the country and jumping in the mud.
"We have good links with St Olave’s, we have our harvest festival and Nativity play there and we want to support the local community."
The sponsorship money has yet to be counted but it is hoped the walk raised between £40 and £50 for the church appeal.
