St George’s School in Sun Lane celebrated St George’s Day on Friday, April 27 by hosting soldiers from the Parachute Regiment, who taught pupils about the life of a soldier and the expanding role of women in the forces.

The school catering department also cooked and served 850 curries in an hour as part of The Soldiers’ Charity’s ‘Big Curry’ project, before the Great Curry Run on Sunday, April 29.

Six-hundred and eight people aged between five and 73 took part in the Great Curry Run, walking or running 20km along the Nickey Line and the pavements of West Common.

This year the money raised, around £30,000, was split between The Soldiers’ Charity and Humanitas, which protects vulnerable children around the world and was founded by former pupil Sarah Wade.
