Have your say

PUPILS, parents and staff at a school in Fareham ran a total of 1,674 miles for a children’s charity.

The team at Boundary Oak School raised £1,759 for the NSPCC.

The amount will be enough to pay for 400 youngsters in need to use their confidential hotline ChildLine.

Fareham MP Mark Hoban joined the children at the start of the run.

He said: ‘I’m impressed by the level of enthusiasm and commitment from all. It’s reassuring to see that the next generation are keen to help others in such an energetic manner.’

ChildLine is a free and confidential counselling service for children in the UK.

The helpline’s number is 0800 11 11.

There is advice for young people and for people who want to donate to the charity at childline.org.uk
