HAT Annual Fun Run!


Students and staff from our Trust academies joined forces on Friday 8th July to have fun and fundraise for charity at our Annual Fun Run event.

Hundreds of students from Sir Christopher Hatton Academy, Oakway Academy, Victoria Primary Academy and Ecton Village Primary Academy limbered up with a warm-up led by students before setting off to run just over a mile for Cancer Research UK and were seen off the start line by Wellingborough sprinter Anita Neil – the first British black female Olympian.



Anita said “I loved sports day and running, and these students are having fun and raising money for a good cause. “There maybe an Olympian of the future here and budding athletes.”

Rob Hardcastle our CEO said: “For us we want to celebrate sporting achievement and giving back. Our children love being involved.  We wanted to get Anita here for a long time – she’s such an inspiration.”
