Crowdfunding to fund memorial bench in memory of a friend

Today we are bringing you news of Year 11's Olly, who is busy preparing to run a half marathon in memory of Mac Sutcliffe. Olly would like to share with you his aims for running the marathon. Amazingly, Olly has already surpassed his target and we do hope that you will be able to support him.


Message from Olly (Year 11)

Last October the unthinkable happened to my school and a small community called St Mary Bourne. Mac Sutcliffe, a humble, courageous, funny and talented musician was taken from our lives. He was involved in a road traffic accident when he was riding his motorbike to school. Our school could not of been more understanding in letting us mourn over the loss and now a memorial garden is being created in his memory. In April I am running a half marathon to raise money for a bench to go into that garden in his memory. Also along the run I will be raising awareness for the campaign "Drivers be aware of bikes". Any money raised on top of the bench will be going towards Children In Need, as before being adopted by incredible parents Mac was a child in need. If you are able to support me please follow this link -

Any donations will be truly appreciated.
