Kind-hearted staff on run for Cardiff Half Marathon

Fri, 21 Sep 2018

Staff at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools will be going on the run next month to raise money for a cause close to their hearts.

A group of teachers and support staff have been pounding the streets in preparation for the Cardiff Half Marathon on Sunday 7th October.

The staff from Monmouth School for Girls, Monmouth School Girls’ Prep and Monmouth Schools Pre-Prep and Nursery are raising funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

“We are running the Cardiff Half Marathon to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust,” said Mrs Alison Hutchings, Head of Year 11 and teacher of French and German at Monmouth School for Girls.

“Between us, we teach and deal with young people aged between 4 and 18 on a daily basis and the Teenage Cancer Trust is a fantastic charity that is close to all our hearts. Our challenge will be to run 13.1 miles but I am confident we will all cross the finishing line.”

Mrs Hutchings has set up an internet page on behalf of the group to raise funds and is looking forward to tackling her third half-marathon.
