Thanet Teachers Raise Money For Children In Need

Teachers from across Thanet took a break from marking this morning to take part in a Charity Football Match for Children In Need. Staff from Margate and Birchington schools lined up against their colleagues from a combined Ramsgate and Broadstairs team in a very competitive and enjoyable game. The turnout was fantastic, with a large crowd supporting their teams in the excellent surroundings of Margate Football Club’s Hartsdown Park. The atmosphere in the build-up to the game was really vibrant and the teams were welcomed with cheers from both sets of supporters as their names were called out over...
