In a few weeks' time one of our Lower School members of staff will be walking 26 miles clad in trainers and an 'outrageous bra' to raise money for a cause close to her heart.

Year 4 teacher Rosemary Evans will be taking on the Moonwalk Challenge - a walking night-time, fancy dress marathon - to raise money for cancer charities which not only fund specific research projects, but also aims to help improve the quality of life, both physically and emotionally, for those going through all types of cancer now.

Rosemary has been in training for a while and is currently working on her costume - which allegedly involves cartons complete with popcorn.

Rosemary said: "My friends and I have entered principally in memory of our very dear friend Dot, who lost her battle with breast cancer a few months ago. Sadly, we all probably have friends, family or colleagues who have been affected by this terrible thing. We are walking under the team name '4Dotcom' and hoping to raise as much as we can for cancer charities. 

We know from Dot's experience that progress is being made, but there's still a long way to go, to ensure no one else has to have a life cut short through such a cruel disease."
