12th October 16
On Sunday morning, an intrepid group of KAS children, parents and teachers came together at the Kenwood Café to take part in the Countryfile’s Ramble for BBC Children In Need.
We were blessed with a beautiful, sunny and warm Autumn morning. The pace was set by two boys on bikes who blazed the trail for us and would stop for us to catch up at designated points.
Our circuit of The Heath took us by the Highgate Ponds, down to Parliament Hill Fields, up Parliament Hill and round to the Hampstead Ponds, over Viaduct Pond and through West Meadow, back to Kenwood House. It was great to be outdoors enjoying the scenery and each other’s company. A number of people wished that the experience could be repeated more often.
Those who were unable to make the ramble on The Heath, were offered the opportunity to run around the KAS field 5 times during Monday lunch break or just after Callover, this Wednesday. Everyone received a certificate and many children did 5-13 laps!
Now, all that remains is for everyone to collect their sponsor money and hand it in to me (Lucy) as soon as they can, either as cash or a cheque made payable to “The King Alfred School”, so that we can discover the grand total to be sent to Children In Need, to support those children who are experiencing major challenges in their lives.
Thank you to all those who have taken part!
