Motivated staff from a Melton nursery were put through their paces recently, when they participated in the Race for Life.
Colleagues at Little Stars Pre-school, which is based at St Francis Catholic Primary School, braved the mud and entered the five kilometre course at Prestwold Hall near Loughborough.
Laura Sanders, proprietor of Little Stars, said: “As a part of our day nursery’s second birthday and my five year anniversary of starting the business, myself and many of my employees entered.
“We have a large emphasis on outdoor learning at our day nursery and wanted to show the children that we love mud too!
“We raised £520 for Cancer Research UK and were really proud.”
