Bolton School Junior Boys have raised a staggering £7,944.18 for
the Association of Spinae Bifida and Hydrocephalus. Pupils were
joined by the Head, Mr Michael Percik and the Deputy-Head, Mr Craig
Rashleigh as the whole school got into colourful fancy dress for
the School's annual Charity Day on Friday 13 June. The boys worked
hard for their sponsorship money, running around the Senior
School's playing fields for 40 minutes. Many parents came to cheer
on their sons and to watch the spectacle.
Year 5 pupil, Mustafa Majeed, said: "Fantastic, it was tough but
I kept on going on."
The charity was represented on the day by Mr Matt Johnson who is
a Sports Teacher in Bolton School Boys' Division's Senior School.
Mr Johnson, used to teach at the Junior School and has recently
undergone two lots of brain surgery after being diagnosed with
Hydrocephalus. Mr Johnson recently completed the Greater Manchester
10k run and will combine the money he raised with the money raised
by the boys.
On Monday 30 June Shelly Bullard, Corporate Relations Officer at
ASBAH, attended an assembly in the Junior School and was delighted
to receive such a large cheque. She said: "this is a great effort
by the boys, we are not used to receiving such large donations. We
are very impressed."
