SLIDESHOW: Charity run for lollipop lady

Runners have taken part in a charity fun run which raised money to keep a town’s lollipop lady in place.

It was the latest fundraising venture aimed at supporting the patrol on Rushton Road, Rothwell, which is on the route home for pupils from three local schools.

Organiser Gill Dawson said the inaugural run, on Sunday, April 28, would help pay for the lollipop lady, Liz Chester.

The county council decided to withdraw funding for patrol officers in Northamptonshire two years ago as part of its cost-cutting measures.
