Over 400 runners pounded the streets of Pendock for a Spring Run to raise money for a village school.

Runners picked a route from a choice of 10K, 5K and 1K fun run as part of the Pendock Spring Chicken Run.

The event raised a total of £2,800 which will be put towards new classroom technology at Pendock Primary.

Runners included those from local running clubs Black Pear Joggers, Malvern Joggers and Tewkesbury Athletics Club.

Ledbury Army Cadets helped with marshalling, car parking and manning water stations.

Refreshments of burgers and hot dogs made with Hillworth Farm organic meat and cakes donated by parents of the school were enjoyed afterwards.

Head teacher Sally Lyndon-Chance said: "We are delighted that the Pendock Chicken Run was such a huge success again this year and we are very grateful to all those who worked so hard to make it happen.

"It is a fantastic example of school and community working together to achieve something brilliant.

"We were proud to be able to share Pendock Primary's excellent facilities with so many members of the public."

The first Spring Chicken Run was held last year and raised £1,500 which was spent on solar panels for the school.
