Children at Great Paxton Preschool are raising money to provide the school with new resources.  

The pre-school children are embarking on a mammoth challenge to scoot/cycle/run the distance from Great Paxton Preschool to Buckingham Palace and back. 

This is a distance of 200 km to raise £500 and develop the children’s learning experiences and have some fun.

They started this challenge on January 26 and have completed 67km so far.  

Manager of Great Paxton Pre-school Julie Marks said: “We are amazed at the children's determination to complete this task with some children completing more than 4km.

“We have a chart mapping where we a started and showing where we are each day, the children are given a sticker to show their parents how many laps they have completed.    

“We are proud of each and every one of the children for their achievements."
