Staff and students of St Dominic’s Sixth Form College, Harrow have given their time over two consecutive weekends in June to raise funds for two great charity causes.
Forty members of the college community, including staff, former students and friends of St Dominic’s, walked 5 km around the beautiful local area in order to raise money for St Luke’s Hospice. It was a fun and, miraculously, dry event for all involved, raising over £1,355.50. A special mention to the many furry friends of St Dominic’s who led the way in exchange for snacks.
The following weekend, 25 staff and students took to Hampstead Heath to run the 2019 Race For Life in support of cancer charities. They were all dressed in pink and braved a 5 km run over the hilliest route outside of the Himalayas. This is the 7th year St Dominic’s has taken part, and this year they raised around £2,500 for this amazing cause.
A big thank you to Vice Principal Nicola Walsh for leading these events and many others for their unwavering enthusiasm.
