Cavendish Primary School hails 'inspirational' Lifestyle team
A LIFESTYLE team has been hailed as an inspiration by staff at Cavendish Primary School.
Jack Robinson, Elliot Sargeson and Alex Brantuo, all aged ten, made the final of Humberside Police's competition after raising almost £4,500.
The three friends donated more than £1,500 of sports and numeracy equipment to the school in Cavendish Road to help pupils with learning difficulties.
Michelle Newton, pastoral PA at the school, hopes the team's success will inspire more pupils to take part next year.

"They have done a fantastic job over the summer," she said.
"They are a credit to the school and we are all extremely proud of them.
"I'm sure other children will want to follow in their footsteps next year after seeing what the three boys have achieved."
Ms Newton attended the Lifestyle awards ceremony last week with headteacher Machaela Heavens.
"It was a really touching moment," she said.
"It is an ongoing fundraising initiative and I'm sure it won't be the last we hear of these boys."
Jack, Elliot and Alex made up the Lifestyle team LFK Youth.
Hull KR fan Jack, who plays for Skirlaugh Bulls under- 13s, said they took part in the project to help less fortunate children than themselves.
"We have really enjoyed working together," he said.
"To be able to help other kids has been really cool."
The team won an adventure holiday to France including two days at Disneyland Paris and MGM Studios.
Ashleigh Robinson, Jack's dad and LFK Youth's adult mentor, said the prize is a well deserved reward.
"The boys have worked extremely hard and have raised an amazing amount of money," he said.
"They are really looking forward to going to France but have already said they want to win the competition next year.
"Although the Lifestyle project is over, they continue to raise funds and come up with ideas for the future."
"They have learnt some valuable life skills and it was a good experience for them.
"I would recommend the Lifestyle project to anyone."
As well as donating equipment to the school, they also teamed up with charity shop Life For A Kid to launch a charity rugby shirt.
The money raised through shirt sales will go towards providing coaches to Skirlaugh Bulls Rugby Club.
