Sadly in February his year our wonderful friend, colleague and teacher lost his life whilst playing football, James was just 28. It was then suggested to enter a staff team into the Hornsea Third Marathon in James’ memory. We chose the charity CRY because a few years ago we at Hornsea School also lost a wonderful young man called Josh Fell – Josh was only 15! Josh’s family work tirelessly to raise awareness for CRY and make a massive difference in our community with regular screening programmes. Although James didn’t die from the same condition it was something close to the hearts of the school. Eight members of staff took part and finished the event with one of our fellow English teachers Richard Buckle actually coming in first! So a great achievement all round I think you will agree. A total of around £1,700 has been raised and I for one feel very privileged to have been part of it. Good luck with all future fundraising.
