The staff took part in a fitness challenge, as they ran, jogged, walked and cycled 173.15km.

The annual Charities Day is a chance for children, parents and teachers to work together to raise money and awareness for local charities.

Head of Danes Hill School, Maxine Shaw, said: ‘We aim to foster in every pupil an understanding of the challenges that children and families can face through no fault of their own. Through this understanding will come a willingness to give their own time and money to support those who need help the most.’
