Mablethorpe Primary Academy’s student council were discussing what they’d like to see at their school, and they unanimously decided that they wanted a new trim trail after their old one was removed.

The children suggested the school run a number of fundraising events to make it happen, including a disco, tuck shops and non uniform days, and with donations from a number of other sources, they raised more than £11,000 with money still coming in, and further fundraisers planned.

Lexie Hemmings spokesman for Mablethorpe Primary Academy, said: “We as a school were also very lucky as we received generous donations from Tesco and local councillors which without their help out project wouldn't have happened.
