RHS teachers walk 20 miles to raise money for homelessness
We are delighted to announce that a group of teaching staff who have raised over £1000 (and counting!) for Julian House, a homeless charity, by participating in the Circuit of Bath, a 20-mile walk across the hilly countryside that surrounds the city. The walk reaches from the viewpoint at Little Solsbury Hill and Lansdown, to the beautiful villages of Englishcombe and South Stoke.
A huge congratulations to Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Pocock, Mrs. Pagnamenta, Mrs. Ladbury-Webb, Ms. Bolan, Mrs. Cruse, and a big thank you to staff, parents and friends for their generous support.
Mrs. Pagnamenta, Head of History, commented, “The walk was a really a fantastic day from start to finish. We started at 7:30 and it took us exactly 8 and a half hours. The amazing weather meant we could really appreciate the fantastic views across Bath - our favourite was looking back at the school from the top of Little Solsbury Hill. Everyone remained cheerful despite heavy legs and sore feet taking their toll on the final leg from Odd Down to Newbridge and we are all still standing today (if rather creaky in the joints!)”.
Mrs. Ladbury-Webb said: "Twenty miles is a long way and it involved ups and downs, both in terms of altitude and physical comfort. It was fun to walk with colleagues and to be part of a (not online) team. I felt a real sense of achievement when we finished the walk and am thrilled with the amount that has been raised for such a worthwhile charity."
