In June, pupils from Belfast Royal Academy enjoyed a wonderful day at their annual Sponsored Walk and inaugural Colour Run. The event was a huge success, with over 800 pupils tackling the 5 mile Cave Hill walk before enjoying the fun filled run. As well as having a fabulous day of fun in the sunshine, the colourful event raised over £5500 for local charities!
Sponsorship money raised went to three very deserving local North Belfast charities – the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice, and Yeha and Streetbeat Youth Projects who both provide much needed youth support and counselling services in the North Belfast area. Proceeds from the BBQ stall and the Belfast Wood Fired Pizza Company van on the day were also sent to Save the Children Northern Ireland.
A huge thank you to pupils’ parents, families and friends and everyone who supported the event and made it such a success, and special thanks to our very generous local sponsors, without whom the day would not have been possible – Calvert Office Equipment, Madigans Court, MAD Colour and The Signature Works.
