ENERGETIC youngsters from a Scarborough school proved a challenge was no obstacle after completing a charity race.

The foundation stage children from Overdale School took part in a sponsored obstacle course to raise funds for future trips and new toys.

Faced with army-style cargo nets and testing tyre terrain, the 58 pupils, who are aged between three and five years-old, also carried buckets of water and had to kick footballs into a net on the course which had been set up in the school’s playground.

Teacher Julie Dixon said the obstacle course adventure had so far raised around £250 but expected the fund to swell as further donations flood in.

She said the money would be used for two trips, with the full time pupils embarking on a trip to Cruckley Animal Farm, in York, and the part-time youngsters set to enjoy a day on Filey beach.

She also said that funds would also be going towards new toys fort he children to enjoy.

She added: “The children had lots of fun and raised a lot of money.

“It was a great day and all of the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”
