A kind-hearted Year 7 pupil has been taking in the fresh air while helping others.

Priory pupil Alfie competed in a 1.5km Santa Dash along Liverpool Road down to Galloway’s Society for the Blind in Howick, raising money for Rosemere Cancer Care.

“My aunty had cancer so we wanted to do it for Rosemere,” said Alfie.

Alfie’s great-grandad was involved with Galloway’s and helped support the visually impaired people play bowls.

“Alfie and I thought it was a great way to get away from the Xbox for a while, get fit and support two fantastic charities. We will definitely be putting our names down next year,” said dad.

Alfie also recently took part in bulb planting, following an appeal by Friends of Hurst Grange Park to help plant the bulbs given to them by Penwortham Town Council.

“I enjoy helping people,” said Alfie. "Both activities have been fun, I like taking part in sports, and they have helped people as well."

Alfie will receive a PiXL Edge Award Certificate for completing an activity which shows initiative and resilience. His efforts also support Priory’s culture theme for the term, ‘kindness’.
