The Magnificent 7 Climb Ben Nevis for Charity

The Principal met with Tanya Sprunks this week, a parent of the College and our local Police Inspector prior to her setting off on an adventure of a life time later this month!  The ‘Magnificent 7’ as they have named themselves, are heading to Scotland January 25th to tackle Ben Nevis, the highest mountain on the British Isles. All funds raised will be split 50/50 between Frontline Children, a UK registered charity raising funds to help children in conflict and war zones access education and St. Dominic’s Sixth Form College who are fundraising for new sports equipment to support students develop their health and fitness programs, which is believed to be an integral part of academic success.

Tanya is one of The Magnificent 7 who has a son in year 12.  She is a senior police officer and fitness instructor and will be joined by Sky News presenter Kay Burley and Jordan Wylie, who is fresh from appearing on the TV show ‘Hunted’.  The other participants include French diplomat Aurelie Bonal, Sky News’ deputy political editor Beth Rigby, and two others from the world of media and TV. They will make their attempt on Friday, January 25.

The ‘Magnificent 7’ hope to raise £5,000, which will be split equally between Frontline Children and St. Dominic’s.

Everyone at St. Dominic’s wishes them all the very best of luck and hope that lots of funds are raised for both causes.  If you would like to donate funds please click the link below.
