Hereward House School in Hampstead completed an ultramarathon relay on Saturday in aid of UK military charity Help for Heroes.

Over six hours, 107 boys – including some as young as five – joined parents and teachers from the school to collectively run a continuous 205 miles on Hampstead Heath.

So far the event has raised just under £1,500 and it is expected that they will pass that mark.

Deputy head and race organiser Chris Hammond said: “It was a wonderful day for everyone who took part, and the school is very proud to have raised so much for a worthy cause.”
