Staff from Wymondham's Robert Kett Primary School are set to run the upcoming Marriott's Way Trail half marathon.

A team of a dozen Robert Kett staff and teachers, many of whom admit they are 'not experienced runners', will tackle the course to raise money for new class libraries.

Deputy headteacher Janine Salter, who heads the fundraising initiative with Year 3 and 4 phase leader Lianne Rees, said: “We have always wanted a library at Robert Kett, but due to the relocation of classes across the school, we have been considering alternative spaces filled with amazing books.

“We thought individual class libraries was the next best thing and so we have started raising money for those additional rich texts that will enhance our reading experience even more.

“We are looking forward to the event and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us, and donated money to the cause, so far.”

Their team, 'I’d Rather Be Reading', will run or walk the half marathon on February 11.
