There were no loo-sers when two year 8 boys completed five laps of their school playing field dressed as toilets.
Sanders Draper School pupils Jack Sweetman, 12, and George Roomes, 13, ran the five-mile course to raise much-needed cash for Water Aid – which helps those in developing countries access clean water and better sanitation.
Inspired by a geography lesson at the Hornchurch school, Jack and George decided to complete a sponsored run to benefit those struggling to survive without adequate water supplies.
And the boys were flushed with success as family, neighbours and teachers put £200 in the bowl for their efforts.
Geography teacher James Foley said: “Water Aid is a fantastic charity that works with local communities in developing countries. We are exceptionally proud of Jack and George who have both shown such initiative and a steely determination to achieve their goal.”
