Mount St Mary’s walk to Amarillo
Mount St Mary’s College and Barlborough Hall School showed initiative in fundraising for Jesuit Missions by attempting to walk the equivalent distance from North East Derbyshire to Amarillo, Texas.
While the challenge, of some almost 4700 miles, may sound like a big one, pupils and staff at the school are hoping to reach the target by adding all their miles together and raising funds as they go. Pupils, parents, staff and friends of the school are attempting to walk from Spinkhill, where Mount St Mary’s College is situated, to Amarillo, via Barlborough.
The challenge was launched with a video recorded in school in the style of Tony Christie and Peter Kaye starring Mount Trust Chief Executive Gareth Chapman and Mount St Mary’s College’s Deputy Headmaster Jack Murphy.
“We’re fundraising for Jesuit Missions because we believe it’s important that in the midst of our own struggles and challenges with Covid-19 we remember that there are many people in the world less fortunate than us and who are facing greater challenges,” said Jack.
“We chose to walk because it is an inclusive form of exercise, something which we can all do in lockdown. Moreover, walking alongside each other, even virtually, seemed like a good form of companionship, reminding ourselves that we walk alongside each person in support and friendship.”
