CLF Staff Run a Virtual 10K

This year 157 staff from across the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) had intended to participate in the Bristol 10K. Due to the pandemic, this did not happen this year, but CLF staff ran the 10K virtually around their back gardens and the towns and villages where they live; fundraising to support our most vulnerable students.

Donations will support these children with necessities at this difficult time. Examples of ways the money will be spent are:

  • Family food boxes (which contain recipe cards and toiletries), of which over 2000 have already been given out over the Easter break
  • Family arts and craft kits and IT support, and
  • Access to IT for disadvantaged families.
  • Providing memorable opportunities for students to learn and grow when schools return to ‘normal.’ For example, trips and visits and additional activities outside of the classroom.

If you would like to assist in our fundraising campaign you can do so by visiting-

All donations are very gratefully received by children within the communities that we serve – some of the feedback about the food boxes we have received so far has been, ‘not having to worry about food at this time has been huge relief‘ and ‘we can’t thank you enough for your support – we can’t wait to try out the recipe ideas’.

 Kate Richardson, Executive Principal of the Cabot Learning Federation said, “When schools closed due to the pandemic we knew the right thing to do was to try to raise funds for our disadvantaged pupils at this difficult time. The CLF Big Run team have really risen to the challenge of the virtual run – we’ve seen sweaty selfies, hill sprints and even an engagement en route! I couldn’t be prouder to work with such a dedicated team hoping to raise as much as we can to support the children we work with.”
