9E4's Sponsored Run11/11/16
During the lunch period today, one form group from The North School braved the chilly temperatures in their trainers to run in aid of the Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Association. This was 9E4’s second fundraiser for the charity, which supports people living with PSP – a terminal neurological condition that can affect balance, vision and swallowing amongst other things. Last month’s bake sale raised an admirable £50 but this lunchtime saw the bar raised, with more than £500 worth of sponsorship collected so far. Members of both the school and local community have been generous of time and spirit to raise money for a cause close to their hearts; even form teacher Jessica Langston and Vice Principal Matthew Hake dug out their running shoes.
With a large part of the year left to go this form are ambitious to keep fundraising for a charity that supports more than 4000 people a year in the UK; there are already future events being discussed and a total target of £1000 has been set.
