Young runners pounded the pavement in true Christmas style as they raised money for Brian House and Trinity Hospice.

More than 100 children in Years One to Six at Rossall Juniors and Infants School wore antlers to tackle their inaugural Reindeer Run for The Gazette’s Hospice Heroes campaign.

The run around the school grounds, in Fleetwood, was held over two days for the 35 Infants and 78 Juniors.

Katie Lee, headteacher at Rossall Juniors, Infants and Nursery, said: “The children thought it was absolutely wonderful.

“They ran in their antlers and when they completed the race they were awarded a red nose.

“It’s important that children at Christmas time know that not all children are going to have a super-duper time like them.”

The campaign is aiming to raise £200,000 to be put together with a £280,000 grant from the Department of Health to redevelop facilities at the Bispham sites.
