Pupils from Cheadle Hulme Primary School laced up their trainers and took to the playground in our latest fundraising event: ‘Walking in their Shoes’.

This event was in support of The Together Trust, our chosen charity for 2022-23.

The Together Trust help people with disabilities, autism and complex health needs.

They also provide life-changing support for looked-after and care-experienced people. 

Pupils in every year group got involved by walking, running, and hopping their way through as many miles as they could!

This was a great chance to try out our newly enhanced playground and support The Together Trust at the same time!

Thanks to our PTA‘s fundraising efforts, the playground has been upgraded with new markings which will enrich children’s playtime and sports lessons.

Pre-School enjoyed trying out the new playground


We had lots of fun using the new markings to track how many miles had been completed!

Year 1 were excited to track their laps with our new playground markings

As a school, we managed to walk 376 miles and raise £161!

We’re extremely proud of this achievement and hope that the children are too.

In addition to raising money, our pupils raised awareness for The Together Trust.

The children also learned about the importance of celebrating and embracing differences by ‘walking in their shoes’,

This was our first planned event since partnering with The Together Trust earlier this year.

During the Spring Term, we donated lots of pre-loved clothing as part of their Declutter and Donate.

We look forward to supporting the charity with more fundraising events later in the year.

Finally, we’d like to say a huge thank you to our PTA for the new playground and to all the children for their efforts.
