A sponsored walk by pupils at Langley Pre-Prep and Prep School has raised money to help fight a cancer which affects children in particular.

All the pupils – aged from three to 13 – and staff at the Taverham school walked, skipped and ran 1km around the grounds in aid of Sarcoma UK.

They hoped to raise £500 but think they may have raised more than that.

Roger Outwin-Flinders, head of prep at Langley, said: “We are always proud to support good causes – both locally and nationally. This year, the Crows House has chosen to support Sarcoma UK and they organised the sponsored walk involving the children and staff.”

Richard Davidson, chief executive at Sarcoma UK, said: “Our charity relies solely on voluntary donations and the efforts of our fundraisers and supporters, so we are delighted that the children and staff decided to help us help those who are affected by sarcoma.”

Sarcomas are the third most common cancer in children, making up 11pc of all cancers in children in the UK, and a child is diagnosed nearly every other day.

The charity funds research, offers support, and campaigns for better treatments.
