Children from Ramsey Spinning Infant School raised more than £1,500 for their school by taking part in a fun run.

The event was organised by Ramsey Rotary Club and the children were rewarded for their efforts on the day with certificates.

A total of £1,664 was raised and Mayor of Ramsey Ian Walker presented the children with medals in a special ceremony held at the school last month.

Headteacher Diana Cooling said: "It was a marvellous effort from the children and great to raise so much money which will be put towards our computer suite. We had just under 100 kids running and even some former pupils came back to run for us which was a nice gesture. We offer our heartfelt thanks to Ramsey Rotary Club for organising the event and helping us to help the school."
