People of all ages have today (Friday, March 21) taken part in events to raise funds for Sport Relief.

In Warkton, 12 residents at the Country View nursing home, as well as their relatives and helpers, combined to travel a mile around the home’s garden.

A coffee morning and raffle was also held to support Sport Relief.

Activities organiser Caroline Barratt said the home’s oldest resident, 106-year-old Alice, was among those taking part.

She said: “They enjoy their sport and it’s a good excuse to raise money for a good cause.”

Meanwhile, all hundreds of pupils at Park Infant School in Kettering took part in a 40-minute session of bokwathon, a fitness-style dance routine.

Deputy head teacher Helen Marshall said each class had individual sessions timetabled during the week, but it was the first time the whole school had taken part together.
