Teenage Cancer Trust

Dear all,

The students and staff are in the final stages for their preparation for the 5k run in Pymmes Park this Saturday.

They have been training under the watchful eye of Mr McLean who has recently completed the Brighton marathon and raised over £600 alone towards our school target of £5,000!

The students had an assembly with a representative from Teenage Cancer Trust today who explained how the money raised is used to support teenagers who get cancer (a scary statistic provided was that 7 teenagers a day find out they have cancer in the UK).

Please, please, please dig deep tomorrow when you see the donation buckets, better still use the Just Giving page to leave a donation (don’t’ forget to Gift Aid it) and leave a message of support for those involved:


Please encourage students/family/friends to do the same, we are very grateful for the kind donations already received from staff, students and friends of the school who wish to support such a worthy charity.

Many thanks in anticipation of your support,

Joanne Hamill

Deputy Headteacher

Edmonton County School
