SHINING BRIGHT: Stanmore school staff take on 10km challenge in colleague’s memory

A Stanmore school has raised more than £11,000 for Cancer Research UK.

Forty-one members of staff from Park High School took part in the charity’s 10km Shine Night Walk on Saturday, September 23.

The walk takes participants on a winding route through London, weaving between iconic landmarks such as Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and St Paul’s Cathedral.

Walkers are asked to dress in colourful, glowing outfits to illustrate how research can help to illuminate the dark path that cancer patients must tread.

A spokesperson for the school said: “Our Park High team shone brightly throughout, from fairy wings to our very own amazing glitterball worn throughout the walk by Mrs Molloy!

“Our team walked side by side with thousands of people working together to raise money to help beat cancer. All staff completed the walk in under three hours, with Mr Osman being first (in the entire event) to cross the finishing line, completing the walk in a record time of one hour and eight minutes.

“Unfortunately, we have all had people we know and love be touched by cancer. Our Park High team organised and dedicated this year’s Shine Walk in memory of a much-loved colleague who sadly lost her battle with cancer last year and colleagues who are undergoing treatment.”
