Old Bordenians will be interested in the forthcoming challenge being undertaken by pupils and staff. They are trying to raise as much money as possible for a charity which is very close to our hearts since we received the news about Harold Vafeas's (Headmaster) illness last summer (http://websites.bordengrammar.kent.sch.uk/site/index.php?option=com_rubberdoc&view=doc&id=427&format=raw). If you are able to support this in any way they would be very grateful.
The Head of Physical Education at the school writes:
As you may be aware we are aiming to complete the 3 peaks challenge between the 4-5th May this year. 17 of us will be aiming to reach the summits of the 3 highest peaks in England Wales and Scotland in the timeframe of 24 hours to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK.
I had chosen to organise this event to raise money for this charity after we had recieved the news that rocked the whole of the Staff body last year.
I am wondering if it is possible for you to help us with this challenge by spreading the word about what we are doing and by donating what you can towards our total.
We are currently at a total of £1010 and aim to raise over £2000 for this cause. We have a "just giving" page set up at the moment and the link for this is:
I have attached a copy of the information pack that I have put together to outline the challenge further and to outline what we are planning to achieve.
We really hope that you are able to support us in our challenge to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research.
