Mrs Hearn - Raising money for Hemihelp
On Saturday 31 May, our School Counsellor Mrs Abi Hearn, took part in the annual 'South Coast Roll' at Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit near Chichester. This is a fun day organised for anyone on wheels, be it scooters, skateboards, roller blades or roller skates to skate around the 2.4 miles of the race track.
Abi, who is part of a roller derby team, decided with another team member, to skate around the track, not once, not twice but eleven times! Making it a marathon (26.4 miles in total)!
This was to raise money for 'Hemihelp', a charity which offers support and advice to parents of children who have been diagnosed with hemiplegia, a form of cerebral palsy, a condition which affects 1 in 1,000 children.
The day was very wet and there were some very slippery moments but the girls completed it in 3 hours and 40 minutes!
