Boys Raise £10,000 for Charity
Monday, 15 October 2018
Ten charities received £1,000 each as a result of this year’s Bolton School Boys’ Division summer charity walk. Hit by moorland fires, 600 boys were precluded from completing their usual route from Bolton School to Rivington Pike and back, but still undertook a healthy stretch through Moss Bank Park and Bolton Old Links Golf Club, across Chorley New Road to Regent Park Golf Centre before making their way to Queen's Park and then back to school.
The boys then spent the summer collecting their sponsor money and were delighted to hand over £1000 to each of a range of ten local and national charities: Nightsafe Ltd, Back Up, Bolton Hospice, PAPYRUS, Muscular Dystrophy UK, Boot Out Breast Cancer, Leukaemia Care, Lagan’s Foundation, Tim Parry Jonathan Ball Peace Foundation and The Woodland Trust.
Student Luke James, the Head of the school’s Charity Committee, said: “We are delighted to have raised so much money for such worthwhile causes. All the charities have been chosen by the boys for a wide range of reasons and many of them have supported people who are connected to Bolton School.”
