SCHOOL and consultancy service staff are set to put their best feet forward in a half marathon this weekend.

A group of staff from The Loddon School, in Sherfield-on-Loddon, and Loddon Training and Consultancy, based in Popley, have trained hard over the past months to make sure they cross the Reading Half Marathon finishing line on Sunday in good time.

Joel Lopez, Pam Dobson, Jez Courdelle, Pauline McDermott and Alan Burnett, from The Loddon School, and Nicky Smith, from Loddon Training and Consultancy, make up the Loddon Glo runners, who will be wearing Glo green coloured running vests on the day.

The school staff over the years have raised a vast amount of money which has been used to provide additional resources for the children who are educated and live at the school.

This Sunday the team will be running to raise money to purchase an interactive portable floor projector.
