One of our Year 10 learners, Hannah, recently ran the British Legion 5K Poppy Run held at Aykley Recreational Ground in Durham. Along with her mother Debra, older sister Laura (a former Kepier pupil), and her dog Bella, Hannah ran in memory of her Grandad (who died earlier this year), and served 22 years in the Armed Forces. They managed to run the 5K in just over a leisurely but respectable 47 minutes, with Bella running twice the distance, and managed to raise between them £500. Hopefully this will be an annual event for all four of them. This was the first year the British Legion has held a Poppy run at Aykley Recreational Ground, with around 150 people taking part. The day started with a warm up, followed by a 2 minute silence, a bugler playing the last post and then the run itself. The British Legion raised around £85,000 from the 10 runs held nationwide.
