A KALEIDOSCOPE of colour swept through St Edmund’s College & Prep School, Ware, earlier this month, as students participated in a charity Colour Run in support of Cancer Research UK. The lively and vibrant event is a highlight in the school’s ongoing charity fundraising efforts, which have already generated more than £13k for the charity during this academic year.

As students tackled an obstacle course in the historic school grounds, they were showered from head to toe with clouds of coloured powders. The enthusiasm and sportsmanship on display throughout the event created a memorable spectacle, with student’s white t-shirts covered in a rainbow of colours by the finishing line.

The Colour Run is part of St Edmund’s Charity Week, which features a variety of fundraising activities for students and staff to enjoy. Highlights include competitive football and hockey matches, sponsored car washes, a talent show, the popular ‘soak the teacher’ event and other student-led activities such as bake and pizza sales. Proceeds from the Colour Run will add to the total already raised to date.

Matthew Mostyn, Headteacher at St Edmund’s College, said: “We were thrilled to see our students fundraise in such a vibrant and energetic way in support of a very worthy cause that is close to all of our hearts. Our Colour Run event is highly anticipated every year. As well as encouraging physical activity and teamwork, the event also instils empathy in our pupils and reminds them about the importance of giving something back to society and those in need. Well done to everyone involved.”
