Year 7 Spartan Challenge team raise funds for Spread A Smile

A group of Year 7 SCD students took part in the Spartan Challenge on Saturday 5th October at Windsor (Jude Powell, Amos Beloe, Rhys Hanson, Joshua Kay, Teddy Noonan and Lois Evans).  Jude decided to enter a team for the challenge instead of holding a birthday party to celebrate his twelfth birthday. The team ‘Sam's Spartans’ incredibly raised over £2,000 in sponsorship for ‘Spread a Smile’, a charity that provides entertainment for seriously ill children during hospital treatment. Spread a Smile supported brothers Sam and Rhys Hanson in Sam's brave battle with leukaemia, a battle which Sam sadly lost on the 4th of April this year. It was the 6-month anniversary of the loss of Sam the day before the challenge, and it was a very emotional day for all involved. Mrs Evans, who was a supporter at the event, said it was particularly touching to see Jude, in his role as Team Captain, circle back around some of the most challenging obstacles to ensure all his team mates successfully completed the course. The Team should be very proud of themselves for taking part in the challenge and raising such a fantastic amount for Spread A Smile. Well done to the team!
