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.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.
