Santa Fun Run

This week we had KEVI’s annual Santa Fun Run. Students spent time in November and December getting sponsors for the Santa Fun Run.

Over 140 students took part and despite the cold weather conditions we still completed it however it turned into a Santa Fun Walk!

Overall our students raised a whopping £1586! One student raised £275 on his own.

A huge well done to Ryland 8Ap.
