Youngsters take on pollution

Have your say

TEACHERS and students from a school in Waterlooville will be running the Great South Run this Sunday for a charity that supports deprived people across the globe.

RE teacher Mugeni Sumba, modern foreign language teachers Amalia Gomez Lopez and Laura Caspall, and students Lara Woodgate, 16, and Holly Phillips, 17, of Oaklands Catholic School hope to raise hundreds of pounds for the Catholic Overseas Development Agency (Cafod).

Mr Sumba, 37, who has on two previous occasions completed the 10-mile run in 65 minutes and 68 minutes, said: ‘I won’t be racing this year, we’re going into it as a team and I hope we raise lots of money for the excellent charity.

‘I have always been a keen Cafod supporter because I know the work it does goes some way to redressing the injustices that many people in the developing world suffer.

‘We’re all really looking forward to the run.’
