The event, which has been organised by the PE Department at Harrogate High, will see 107 students and several members of staff taking part - and they've already managed to raise a combined total of £1,938! https://www.facebook.com/harrogatehigh/posts/2818317711783235 Catherine Wright, the School Development Officer at Harrogate High, said:
