On the 25th/26th of February Wargrave will be holding its annual Rowathon, this year we will be supporting the Ben McNicol Trust. The Rowathon is an event that has been going for many years that involves members of the house and a couple of member of staff from the College. Everyone will take it in turns to row for 10 minutes continuously for 24 hours.

More about the Trust.
Ben McNicol was born on 17th September 2005 in London . He was diagnosed with a brain tumour on December 23rd 2011 . He underwent surgery at King’s College Hospital which was successful . He subsequently had 6 weeks of radiotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital before commencing chemotherapy . Despite a good initial prognosis Ben’s tumour returned and he tragically died on May 26th 2012 .
The Ben McNicol Trust has been established to make life that little bit easier for children and their families . We have been able to purchase a property that families can stay in during treatment close to the hospital .This has removed the need for some families requiring hospital treatment to travel up to 4 hours per day. We would also like to be able to fund short term accommodation for families close to specialist centres to make the travelling and getting to appointments easier.
