Students in Lewes are set to raise thousands for charity.

Lewes Old Grammar School held its annual sponsored walk from the town to Stanmer Park, in Brighton, on Monday (September 19).

More than 500 pupils took part in the trek, now in its 15th year, swapping uniform for fancy dress.

“Everyone’s feet are a little sore today,” said headmaster Robert Blewitt, on Tuesday (September 20).

“But it was well worth it. The weather held out for us, and everyone is feeling very proud of what we’ve achieved.”

According to the school, pupils are on track to raise £6,000 to be split between its four adopted charities, which include FishAid, a cancer trust in memory of a Lewes Old Grammar School student.
