Over 800 children from four schools in Nottingham are launching the first ever “Robin’s Fun Run” on Friday 4th October. The Fun Run is a unique school sports event raising funds for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, whose mascot is a little Robin Hood.

Kinoulton Primary, Cropwell Bishop Primary, Archbishop Cranmer Primary and Pierrepont Gamston Primary School are pioneering the first Robin’s Fun Run for the Children’s Hospital which is based at QMC and treats 60,000 children each year.

The Fun Run is the brainchild of Dr Louise Wells, Paediatric Consultant at Nottingham Children’s Hospital. Dr Wells wanted to find a way of encouraging local schoolchildren to raise money for the Children’s Hospital.
