Story

On 9th June, 18 dedicated staff members from Withernsea High School will take on the Hull 10K 2024. Withernsea High School is a small School on the coast, with a strong sense of community. There will be 18 people taking part in our run. These range across the leadership team, teaching assistants, the admin team and our teaching staff, who are all looking forward to raising funds for a charity close to so many of our hearts.

Similar to many other communities, individuals across our establishment have been/are facing battles, where additional support and resources from Macmillan have been priceless. We are grateful for the high-quality support available through this charity, and to give back to others facing their own battles.

A staff member in receipt of Macmillan support has said:

“We will beat this together”- a quote that stays with me. One of the first things I remember hearing after being given my diagnosis. You hear the words you have cancer, and a numb feeling comes over you and the room feels silent, people are talking at you but you don’t hear what they are saying. That’s when all I heard was my Macmillan nurse Claire telling me we had this, we will beat this together. I knew from that point on I would be supported through the journey I was about to face, whatever that may be.

From investigations, diagnosis, scans, treatments, surgeries and aftercare, Macmillan have been there every step of the way. They truely go above and beyond their roles, supporting me and my family through it all, either in person or on the end of the phone to answer any questions or worries we had. They have been a pillar of strength and support and I am eternally grateful to them and all who have got me to where I am today."

Thanks for supporting our fundraising. Macmillan gives people with cancer everything they’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are Macmillan’s worries. Macmillan’s doing whatever it takes. But without your help, Macmillan can’t support everyone who needs them. 97% of their work is funded by people who complete charity events such as this.
