Charity Run Success – Raising over £1,800 for our community
September 26, 2023

Teachers and pupils navigated Westminster’s iconic streets from the Mall to Buckingham Palace, successfully completing the Westminster Mile and Vitality 10,000, all in the name of charity.

The school has collectively raised an impressive £1,816 so far for the Cardinal Hume Centre, a local charity committed to supporting those experiencing homelessness and poverty.

One parent shared, ‘We have done the Westminster Mile today, which was an excellent success and great fun.’ Another parent echoed this sentiment, noting, ‘[Our son] really enjoyed it. We had beautiful sunshine, and it was a great day out.’

Among those who participated were Emmanuelle Banfield (Latin), Leonie Chacksfield (English), Gwenaël Gougay (French), Alice Hartley (Art), Paul Isaac (Science), Kate Jefferson (Master), Edward Matthews (Maths), Mary Raikes (Year 4), Rosie Smith (English), Nick Starbrook (Games), Rebecca Wrigley (Maths), and Michael Woodside (Deputy Master).

With pupils Aksharan (Year 7), Alex (Year 7), Alexander H (Year 3), Honquian (Year 3), Ari (Year 5), Eli (Year 5), and Alexander B (Year 8) who also joined in the effort.

Together, they showcased the remarkable power of collective effort and marked the beginning of a year devoted to supporting charitable causes.

We extend our thanks to Mr. Gougay, our French Teacher, for expertly organising the charitable run, and to the entire school community for offering unwavering support to everyone involved in such an important charitable cause.
