Sponsored Walk

The whole Shrewsbury School community spent Thursday 22nd September in the Shropshire Hills on a 30-kilometre sponsored walk to raise much-needed funds for the Shewsy.

Over 900 walkers took part – including all the pupils, teachers, many support staff, a number of parents and governors and members of the Shewsy itself.

See the timelapse video of their walk here on YouTube:

Thanks to their efforts the Sponsored Walk raised the incredible total of £78,397!

Dave Brereton, Shewsy team leader said:  ‘This is an astonishing amount of money raised and far exceeds our wildest expectations. It will enable us to continue to offer engaging and challenging opportunities for club members. This funding is a lifeline for the young people of Everton. Club members and staff have been completely overwhelmed by the amount raised and this has given all at the club a massive boost to morale”.
