King Alfred Climb for Charity
King's has seen a good number of fundraising activities taking place across the school community.
Having had to postpone their charity event at the end of the Lent Term, the boys in King Alfred House began limbering up for a challenge of epic proportions.
Over the weekend of 20 and 21 June, the boys – across countries and continent – utilised their staircases to climb the equivalent distance from the bottom of Challenger Deep to the peak of Mount Everest – a whopping 19883 metres.
And so, on the morning of the 20 June, dressed in pink, the boys set about raising funds for Against Breast Cancer.
Commenting, Housemaster, Sam Florey, said: "The boys from King Alfred completed their mammoth climb, scaling the distance from the bottom of Challenger Deep to the top of Mount Everest and back down again on their staircases around the world. They showed good teamwork, but special mention must go to George S, Tom S, Thomas B, Henry H, George S, Charlie R, Patch R and Mr Shaw, who all went the extra length by completing more than their fair share, showing true determination and spirit."
At the time of writing, they have raised a fantastic £1305 for their chosen charity. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/kingalfredhouse
Well done boys. You've set the bar high indeed for future fundraisers to come.
