A group of teachers and friends of Sullivan Upper School will be walking 80km in 20 hours to raise money for a number of charities which have a strong Sullivan connection. Some people will be planning to complete the full distance and others will join us for part of the day. This will take place on Saturday 2 June 2012. Starting when the sunrises and hoping to finish before the sun sets.


The idea came from reading an article about a woman who walked 80km to seek medical attention for her sick child. This distance resonates with those involved in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme where the Gold candidates are required to cover that distance in 4 days in wild country.


The charities we are hoping to raise a lot of money for are


·        Work of John Turner in Cambodia -(John Turner is a former Technology teacher who along with his wife is working among the street children in Cambodia.

·        UCCI – UCCI is an Indian charity focussed on the provision of schooling for the children of the poorest families of the Andra Pradesh in Eastern India.


In addition we will be supporting a number of charities in memory of the following people (former pupils and parents of pupils in school)


·         Rebecca Graham (former pupil) - CardiomyopathyAssociation




·        Andrew Drain (former Head Boy) - Leukaemia and Lymphoma research.


·        Andrew Campbell (former pupil) – Bright Red.


·        Rosi Kirker Millar (parent) – Bowel Cancer UK


·        Malcolm Chisholm – Tear Fund


We would encourage you to give as generously as possible - every donation helps, no matter what size it is. The fund raised will be split equally amongst the listed charities.

If you are a UK tax payer, you can easily increase the value of your donation by choosing to Gift aid it. This will increase your donation by 25p for every £1 and if you are please tick the gift aid box to confirm that for you to be paying income tax or capital gains which at least equals the amount Sullivan Upper School will claim in the appropriate tax year (6 April one year to 5 April the next). This is currently 25p for every £1 you give
