An Aberdeen school has planned a socially-distanced relay around their city suburb to raise funds after their usual events were cancelled.
More than 100 children from Milltimber School and nursery will be taking part in the challenge at the weekend.
Pupils from nursery up to Primary 7 will run designated sections of the route around Milltimber.
The sponsored event has been organised by the school’s PTA, with all funds raised going towards learning resources for children.
Milltimber’s PTA stages a number of crowd-pulling events each year, including the busy summer fayre.
However, Covid restrictions have forced a change of tack – and the committee has been delighted with the response from parents and children so far.
PTA chairwoman Gwyneth McIntosh said: “We wanted to provide a fundraiser that would involve everyone in the school community, while adhering to the current health guidelines.
“Given the school’s commitment to the health and wellbeing of our children – and the love of outdoor activities and learning – we reckoned the relay would be a great way to mark the end of an unbelievable term.”
Milltimber School and nursery held a virtual sports day recently, with children of all ages taking part in sporting challenges to gain points for their house.
The sponsored relay gets under way on Saturday at 10am, with local residents encouraged to come out and lend their support.
