Our community spirit keeps going

Alicia (4NC) set herself a cycling challenge to do 26 laps of the local train station car park for 26 days to raise money for Médecins Sans Frontières. She saw the 2.6/26 challenge in the absence of a marathon this year and wanted to do something. She has raised £768 so far, which is great! To visit her fundraising page please click here.

Dylan (3GC) completed his 2.6 dance challenge last Sunday whilst being cheered on by his family and friends via Zoom. Thanks to the generosity of his supporters, he’s exceeded his target of £100 and raised £586 for Royal Free Hospital. He has now inspired three of his friends to raise funds for their own chosen charities too.

Sophie (6RB) has been busy creating much needed PPE; her homemade visors have been given to a care home which is woefully short of PPE. In addition, she’s been helping to send record-your-own cards to families of residents in care homes, so they can have a physical card from their loved ones, and has helped with sorting out linen to donate for scrubs and scrubs bags.

Ruben (6JN) spent lots of his spare time creating visors for the NHS as part of the Visor Army volunteer group. If anyone else would like to get involved, please click here. 

Darcey (7WK) wanted to do something for charity during the lockdown, so she has decided to use our daily exercise to cycle the distance of a marathon in order to raise money for Kisharon. On Bank Holiday Friday she managed 14 miles, and is planning on completing the remaining miles over the course of the week.  She’s done most of this with a smile on her face, but will be the first to admit that she is not a huge fan of the hills! So far she has raised over £2,000. Please click here to visit her fundraising page.

Alfie Cox (7NR) has completed his 100km challenge ahead of his birthday today, he has raised £1,070 so far for Barnet Hospital. He saved his final 100 metres for 8pm last night, so he could finish his 100km bootathon whilst clapping for our carers. Congratulations and Happy Birthday Alfie.

Gracie (8AM) continues her challenge to run 422 km (the equivalent of 10 marathons) before her 13th birthday in August, for the NHS charities. On 12th May, she completed her first marathon. Keep going, Gracie! To keep up-to-date on her progress please click here.

Sophia (6JN) has been busy helping out her local community; supporting those who need help with shopping and also taking part in a weekly donation of food to a local soup kitchen which she helps her mum collect and deliver. Keeping neighbours entertained is also important and she has taken part in jigsaws, recipes and book swaps. There has also been a local photography competition and a beautiful pet competition which she has entered.

Finally not forgetting sport – Sophia has signed up to Race for Life at Home and is trying to achieve a 5km walk with Chewy every other day.
