And the staff from Monmouth School for Girls, Monmouth School Girls’ Prep and Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep and Nursery are grateful for the ‘tremendous’ support received.

“We have been overwhelmed by the tremendous support and are thankful to all the parents, friends and colleagues who have sponsored us.”
Mrs Victoria Taylor, a teacher at Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep and Nursery, added: “We all travelled down for the race together and had wonderful support throughout. The atmosphere was fantastic and the crowd definitely spurred us all on.”
