Festive 5K for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity

Bridgewater School's 2019 Festive 5K for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Charity

On Wednesday 11th December 2019, both students and staff took part in a sponsored Festive 5K run to raise valuable funds for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.

Over 40 Senior School pupils aged between 11 and 17 years braved the wintry conditions to complete the cross country course through Worsley Woods, raising over £1,600 for the hospital charity in the process.

Senior School teacher and event organiser, Vicky Hilton said:

“The Children’s Hospital is an amazing resource in the North West, providing care for over 250,000 children and young people every year. The Charity do so much, particularly at Christmastime when they do everything they can to make hospital a special place to be and we hope that the money the students have raised can make a real difference.”

We believe that indivduals count. So we are interested in what makes us all different. Not just what makes us the same.
