Students have been getting all energetic in aid of charity.

The Meadows School in Leek recently took part in a range of activities to raise funds for Sainsbury's Sport Relief.

The fund-raising activities, at the Springfield Road campus, included the sale of wristbands for £1 each, walking a mile around the campus's astroturf, paying £1 to wear sports clothes for the day, making and selling cakes, guess the football team sweep, who can put on five football shirts in the fastest time and who can put on the most pairs of shorts in one minute.

A spokesman at The Meadows School, said: "Every class joined in the Walk a Mile Challenge including staff and we were also joined by Mrs Howle and Miss Gaulton from our school office.

"We then had a surprise visit by Heather Fryer-Winder from Sainsbury's in Leek. Sainsbury's had very kindly donated a range of leftover Sports Relief clothing and accessories for the fund-raising activities.

"These were shared out among the students who all took something home. They were all thrilled. Thanks again Heather and everyone at Sainsburys for all the support you continue to show to The Meadows School."
