STAFF members at a school in North End will undertake a 38-mile challenge to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer charities.

The team of six from Mayfield School has signed up to the TittyWittering Challenge on Saturday and hopes to make as much money as possible for Everyman and The Prostate Project. It will set off in the afternoon from Titty Hill, a hamlet in West Sussex to the West Wittering – with some members walking and others running.

Gary Appleton, assistant headteacher and signed-up member of Team Mayfield, said: ‘I am really looking forward to the challenge, which we’ve all been training for. I won’t be running but some of my colleagues will, which is very impressive.

‘We’d be delighted to raise as much money as possible and have already approached other staff at the school, friends and family.

‘None of us has been directly affected by prostate cancer but many of us taking part have know of people with cancer.

‘This is just a token of our on-going support of something we think is worthwhile.’
