Walk for Save the Children raises thousands
IN bright autumn sunshine, more than 270 Wells Cathedral School pupils, staff, families and friends took a ten-mile circular walk across the Mendip Hills to raise money for Save the Children.
The walk provides an excuse each year for a thoroughly enjoyable community day – unique to the school calendar year. The walk took in Ebbor Gorge, Pen Hill Mast and some of the most spectacular views of Wells and its Cathedral.
Many of the walkers dressed up for the occasion and costumes included ballet dancers, tigers and Robin Hood – complete with bow and arrows.
Members of the Combined Cadet force carried stretchers around the course.

The senior girls hockey team ran the ten-mile route as part of their weekly training schedule.
The walk raises money for Save the Children. In the last six years alone, the Cathedral School has raised over £17,600.
Walk organiser, Head of Cedars House and English teacher, Martin Ashton, said: “Many, many thanks to all those of you who contributed to such a successful morning.
“We hope to raise £3,000 for Save the Children this year.
“It is a great total for a fantastic cause.”
