Primary pupils made a splash for Sports Relief as friends from Year 5 at Park Hill school swam 1.5km between them to raise £1,000.

Sophie Arben, Amelia Luxmoore, Isabella Heath, Elspeth Stratton and Mae Dilley made up the 60 lengths after organising the event to do their bit.

And adding to the pot for the nationwide sporting charity drive were Year 6 pupils and best friends, Sophie Foster and Sophie Stratton who each swam 5k to boost the kitty by over £400.

After completing the lengthy swim on Sunday, Sophie Foster said: “We swam for over two hours and we are really pleased.”

The pair completed the distance with three team mates at last year’s event, but entered individually this time around to push themselves further.
