The choices we make when shopping for Christmas can be uncomfortable, as we snap up mass-produced gifts, which are often produced by people working in poor conditions for very low wages. But visitors to the Christmas shopping evening at Salesian School Chertsey this week were presented with plenty of opportunity to shop more ethically for Christmas.

St John Bosco Arts: Race for Life 2018

SJJBARace4LifeGp

 

Students, staff and governors from St John Bosco Arts College weren't daunted by the heat and blazing sunshine as they completed their Race for Life on Monday 2nd July, in support of cancer research.

 

Over 40 of them followed a 5k course around the school site, in Croxteth, near Liverpool, in an event organised as part Cancer Research UK's Race for Life Schools Programme. Training and preparations began some time ago, and included a fundraising campaign and assemblies to raise awareness and encourage support, using materials provided by the charity.

 

In addition to the runners and walkers, the event was suported by staff and students acting as marshalls and water assistants in the scorching conditions on the day.

 

The school is very proud of its staff and students, and grateful to everyone who made the event possible: "What a fantastic way to raise money for Cancer Research and what a great team spirit!"

 

Most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, and although more people are now surviving, there is so much more to be done to find new treatments and put an end to this disease. The efforts of the SJBA Race for Life Team are an inportant contribution to this.

 

If you would like to make a donation and support the St John Bosco 5k team, their JustGiving page will remain open for a while longer. 

 

Below: the first staff and student finishers.
