A visit from Mr Happy
The Juniors welcomed a very famous celebrity on Wednesday 30th March – ‘Mr Happy' himself spent a few hours with the girls. He was on his way from John O' Groats to Land's End, running the entire 874 miles in aid of Leukaemia research. Senior girls were bemused to see Mr Happy wandering the corridors with a troop of Junior girls in tow and many stopped to stare!
Mr Happy told the girls all about his run and that he will shortly be running the London Marathon along with Mr Bump, Mr Tickle and a few other friends. He will be half way through his challenge when he reaches Congleton. The Juniors were inspired do some fundraising for Children with Leukaemia, a national charity dedicated to wiping out childhood Leukaemia.
Upper II will begin the campaign by selling Little Miss books that they have written and illustrated themselves. The Juniors all wished Mr Happy good luck in the second half of his run. Anyone can keep up with his progress by visiting his website: www.mrhappyrunsbritain.org. Mr Happy has blogged about his visit to Withington here.
