Race for Life 2018

Our yearly ‘Race for Life’ is a very special event.  It’s exciting to visit and use the Chelmsford stadium athletic track and it is great exercise.  We were also lucky to have such fantastic weather this year!  Must most importantly though, it is a wonderful opportunity to raise money for a charity that is very close to our hearts here at Lawford Mead.  Many thanks to Miss Lyndsay and Mr Pearson for organising, all our volunteers for helping and all the parents who came to cheer the children on. Well done children for running all your laps and encouraging each other on the way round!  We can all feel very proud.

Thank you for all donations so far. If you can and haven’t already, please donate. We would love to beat our total from last year!


Jack - That was my best race ever

Keira - Well done everyone x

Miss Cavendish - Am so proud of all of the children and staff who showed passion and resilience on our race for life afternoon. Lots of people are affected by cancer some are close to us and some we don't know. Each person is loved by someone and missed when no longer here. We will fight on xxxxxx

Mark Golledge (Parent Governor) - Well done all! This looks fantastic. Shame to have missed it ..... but in my mind I was running with you all! :)
Great to have a Lawford Mead takeover of Melbourne Athletics Centre but more importantly raise money for such an important cause. Well done all! Shame that apart from Miss Lindsay there isn't photographic evidence of the teachers running. Do we think they will have to do it again to prove they did it?!?!?

Andrew (parent governor) - A great success in terms of inspiration, hard work and dedication from all. Particularly poignant this year but with a determined attitude to smash this run the children, teachers and other staff gave their all to make this Race for Life a fun occasion, raising over £1000 in just 2 hours. Well done everyone, for all your contributions both financial, organisational and physical.

Jules Loveland - It was a really moving day. You all ran SO well, for a fantastic cause. The atmosphere was awesome as always. Well done Lawford Mead!

Mr Pleydell - Absolutely fantastic, Lawford Mead! Well done to everybody who has contributed to such an excellent event. All children should be very PROUD of their achievements.

Haniya - That was super fun! :)
