Will Reaches Great Heights

22 September 2020  |  G Denison

New NSSFC year 7 students, Will, climbed the height of Mount Snowdon using his stairs at home, that’s 474 flights of stairs!

Will took on his virtual challenge in memory of his Grandad Chris and to raise vital funds for life-saving work in the field of bone cancer research. He climbed an impressive 474 flights of stairs – 7120 steps – and raised an amazing £525! We know your Grandad would be so proud of you, Will.

Mat Cottle-Shaw, Head of Fundraising and Communications at the Bone Cancer Research Trust, said, ‘Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Bone Cancer Research Trust’s income has dropped by 64%, which is a loss of over £680,000. As we face these unprecedented times, we really truly rely on supporters, like Will, who take on such incredible challenges like this to raise vital funds. The funds Will has raised will not only help bone cancer patients right now, but also offer much-needed hope to bone cancer patients of the future. Thank you so much Will.’
