Staff Charity Champs Remember Oliver Thompson
Team Awesome made up of staff from our school, both present and past, took part in the CRY Heart of London Bridges Walk 2014 raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young.
They took part in the five mile walk through London in memory of their friend and colleague Oliver Thompson, who passed away suddenly a year ago at the age of 29.
They were joined by Oliver’s family as around 1200 CRY supporters crossed seven of the Thames bridges from Embankment to Tower Bridge.
Cardiac Risk in the Young aims to provide heart screening programmes which can help identify heart conditions that may otherwise go unnoticed and they also support families who have suffered bereavement.
Teaching assistant Sarah Barnett said: “It was an emotional day full of laughter and fond memories.”
Team Awesome have also staged the Wizard of Oz panto and other fundraising events at the school to raise money for the charity.
