Millfield Pre-Prep Children Raise Over £1,000 for Cancer Research UK

Pre-School children from Millfield Pre-Prep have raised over £1,000 for Cancer Research UK by participating in their Jumping in Puddles Challenge.

The 2 to 4-year-olds took part in the national Cancer Research UK challenge, by jumping up and down in muddy puddles. Parents, friends, and members of the Millfield community donated money towards to cause, raising a total of £1,050 for the charity.

The Jumping in Puddles for Cancer Challenge has so far raised £47,920 for Cancer Research UK.

Head of Millfield Pre-Prep Mike Jory says, “The children and staff had a super time, splashing and stomping in muddy puddles, enjoying soaking themselves and those around them, raising an amazing amount of money for an amazing charity.”
