Congratulations from all at Car Hire Luton Airport to the local school which has been raising money recently.
Chantry Primary Academy pupils in Luton got their boots on recently to raise money for charity. They took part in a sponsored penalty shoot out, organised by the Sports Connections Foundation.
Jamie Kelly, assistant head teacher, said “The event was a lot of fun; all the children were able to take part, as soon as they kicked the ball, their speed popped up on the screen. The feedback from the children was fantastic, they really enjoyed it, it was well received by parents as well, and that is why we are able to raise so much money each time we hold the activity.”
The charity uses sport to help and inspire children in the UK and Africa. They brought a massive inflatable goal to the school which records the speed of each child who shoots at the goal. The Academy has currently raised £1200.
Mr Kelly added “We chose the charity because they work with children the same age as children in our own school, improving the quality of the children’s lives.”
