Geraint was a pupil at Stationers' Company's school and subsequently became a geography teacher there. He inspired many pupils and annually took a group to complete this challenge. He also worked tirelessly as editor of the Old Stationer magazine after the closure of the school.
A group of Old Stationers' are going to attempt this challenge as a tribute to him. We are all somewhat older than when those who went with him first completed it. Indeed those of us who were at school with him will be 76 when we make the attempt in May 2019.
Geraint lost a long battle against cancer in April 2018 and was much supported by his partner who was a Macmillan Nurse. This seems to be the right way for anyone who cannot join the walk for whatever reason to support those who will make the attempt.
