On 7 May over 200 parents, children and staff took part in a fun run to raise money for Josie, The Hawthorns School judo teacher of fifteen years.

In February Josie suffered a life changing accident which resulted in the lower part of her left leg being amputated. Fortunately, Josie is in excellent care now and as a way of helping Josie in her rehabilitation, the School have been raising money to buy her a much needed prosthetic leg in order to regain her mobility.

Participants walked, ran or jogged the 1.2 miles on what proved to be one of the hottest days of the year so far. A fantastic achievement for all and in particular the School’s youngest pupils who participated with as much enthusiasm and willingness as their older peers.

If you would like to donate and help the School achieve the £15,000 needed to buy Josie a new prosthetic leg visit
