Dedicated staff from a Nailsea school will be cycling and running around their neighbourhoods and gardens to raise funds for a sports hall.

Colleagues from Ravenswood School were due to take on the Bristol 10k on Sunday to raise money to build a new sports hall.

More: School needs £2million for new sports hall.

As the event has been cancelled, the fundraisers are planning to run and cycle from their own homes covering a distance of 250km.

A school spokesman said: “We will not give up trying to do the best for our students; our school remains open for some pupils and staff are trying their best either in school or working remotely to look after our pupils.

“As a staff team, we remain committed to raising funds for our big project- a new sports hall.”

The school, which caters for children with special educational needs and disabilities is hoping to raise £2million for a new sports hall.
