Just after the end of term, on 8 July, two of our Summer Fields' staff, Ollie Bishop and Charlie Langley, will be running the Hadrian’s Wall Path trail which runs from Bowness-on-Solway, just west of Carlisle, to Wallsend, in Newcastle.

 

The trail is approximately 140km (80 Roman miles!) and they will be running continuously. Starting at 4am, they hope to finish in less than 19 hours, arriving in Newcastle by 11pm.  They will will be joined by their colleague, Max Jones who is going to film the challenge. Charlie and Ollie will be wearing GPS trackers so that people are able to keep track of their progress in real-time.
 

Speaking about the challenge, Ollie Bishop said,

It will certainly be a very hard challenge but we are hopeful of raising a good sum of money for two worthy causes and this will help us to keep going!

They are raising money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and the school's Bursary fund and sister charity, the Maclaren Foundation. 

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money to support the work of The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre.  Funds raised support four vital areas; research, equipment, treatment and patient environments to help people with cancer.

The aim of the Maclaren Foundation is to provide long-term financial support for means-tested bursaries for pupils at Summer Fields. The money raised will help to increase the endowment fund so that the school can build upon its tradition of excellence by widening access and enabling talented pupils, regardless of background and ability to pay, to benefit from an education at Summer Fields.
