Leybourne pre school, Kings Hill School and St John's in Grove Green, Maidstone, were just some of the schools raising cash for Sport Relief

23 March 2014

Children as young as three pulled on their sports gear to get active for Sport Relief on Friday.

Ahead of this weekend's activities, primary school pupils, and tots even younger, dressed up and got down to some serious fitness for the charity push.

At Leybourne pre school, there was no napping for the 32 three and four-year-olds as they took part in aerobics, gymnastics, car racing and an egg and spoon race during the day.

The pre school, which meets in Leybourne village hall, staged the events throughout the day, and raised around £80 through the week making cakes and selling them to parents and families.

At St John’s primary in Provender Way, Grove Green in Maidstone, classes were sponsored to run the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile on the school field. There had also been a cake and fruit sale the day before.
