We were delighted to welcome our dear friends David Bracey and Desmond High (also known as ‘The Big Stride’ – www.BigStrideOut.co.uk ) to Quest recently.
They both undertook a walk of over 150 miles from Birmingham to London via the Grand Union Canal back last Autumn – no mean feat as they decided they would set a five day target to complete the walk!
The outcome was that they managed to raise £25,000 and shared this between their chosen charities:
- The Primary Club
- Lupus UK
- Fields of Life
- Orchid Male Cancer
- And of course Quest School!
We were delighted to receive the donation and we are using the funds to provide play equipment and IT for our pupils as well as specialist training for our staff.
To celebrate the efforts of David and Desmond, Quest held a joint presentation and we were delighted that our patrons Derek Underwood MBE and his partner Pat were able to join with us to present the cheques to all of the recipient charities.
Well done to all and a particularly big thank you to David and Desmond!
