Year 5 and 6 took part in our 🎅🏻 Santa Dash 🎅🏻 around Acton Park. It was great to be active in our local community with support from local police and Nightingale House Hospice. So far we have raised a fantastic £456.78! This will be shared with Nightingale House. Well done to all children who took part.
