Upton Charity Colour Run 2018
On Thursday 28th June, we are running our first ever ‘Upton Colour Run’ on the school field, starting at 1.45pm. It should be a memorable event!
As this is an event that wouldn’t normally take part in a typical school day, we require your permission for your child to take part. Please complete and return the permission slip below as soon as possible, otherwise your child cannot take part.
If you’ve ever been part of a colour run before then you will know that typically it costs £15-20 per person to take part. Thanks to the generosity of our parents and sponsors, we have been able to get costs down to just £3 per Upton child. For that amount, your child can take part in the event and also receive a colour run medal and event t-shirt. Some parents have even sponsored the medals for their child’s class (£32). If you would like to do this please contact the school office ASAP.
As parents (or grandparents), we invite you and any younger siblings to take part on the day for a cost of £2 each and, although we can only provide medals and t-shirts for our Upton pupils, you will still be able to take part in a great event. Alternatively, you can just come and watch!
Powder Pouches for Sale: While the organisers throw colour powder at the runners as they pass through the colour stations, children can buy a small pouch of the powder to throw themselves. The pouches costs £2 and we are limiting this to one pouch per child, to give everyone in the school the chance to purchase one. If we have any spares after orders have been fulfilled, we will sell them on the day.
Any money raised from the event will go to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Slips that need to be returned are on the letter attached below or can be collected from the School Office.
