SIBLINGS who attend a Tidworth School have taken part in a 245-mile charity walk over 36 hours, raising hundreds of pounds.

Scarlett and Ciaran Smith, who go to The Wellington Academy, put their best feet forward to raise money for Walking with the Wounded.

From 8am on Thursday, December 14 to 8pm on Friday, December 15, four teams took part in an event run by the Royal British Legion Tidworth football team, completing laps around the Tidworth Oval.

The miles mark the distance from the football club’s base to Freilinghien France, where the Truce football match was played during the First World War in 1914.

Ciaran and Scarlett completed an incredible 106 laps with 26.3 miles walk. Scarlett said: “It was my dad who inspired me to take part as he has done the event before, and I wanted to raise money for a good cause.”

Wellington Academy also held a non-school uniform day on Wednesday, December 20, to raise money for the charity – a total of £530 was raised.

Headteacher Robert Wood said: “As a school with a high intake of service families, I was honoured to be asked to help Scarlett and Ciaran raise money for a veteran charity. We are extremely proud of them both and hope we can help the students reach their donation targets with our non-school uniform day.”
