Hit the Park 2021

Every year our current and former students, staff and wider Campion community hit the road to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. We were really hoping to get back to our organised walk this year but, again, it was not to be. Once again, however, people found one of their old t-shirts, planned a route and made a donation to the Teenage Cancer Trust through the Just Giving site.

So far, this year, we have raised over £2,300.

A message has been received from Yvonne Mackintosh, Teenage Cancer Trust, Relationship Manager, London & East Anglia

“I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of Teenage Cancer Trust.  You are all amazing. Jack would be so proud of each and every one of you.  It was fantastic to see your beautiful photos on Facebook of your awesome walks in London, Essex, the Chiltern Hills, Brighton, Southampton, Edinburgh and even more wonderful towns, cities and countryside, not to mention the fabulous colourful t-shirts from past walks and the wonderful pub gardens.  A sincere heartfelt thank you for your continued support. It means so much to us as a charity and the young people that we support”

Another message has been received from Carol Chester, Jack’s mum

“I just wanted to say on behalf of Tom, Jack’s brother, and myself, how honoured we are that ‘Hit the Road (or Park) for Jack’ is still supported and such a major fundraising event for TCT. We appreciate the effort and respect shown by so many people for Jack who showed such courage and positivity throughout his illness. We are so proud of his legacy and want to say a big ‘Thank you’ to everyone involved. Let’s hope that we can all celebrate together next year.
