Oliver is trekking to Everest Base Camp in memory of Matt Rieley
Year 12 student Oliver Roberts is to make the trek to Everest Base Camp next month, and is raising funds at the same time:
In February 2018, I will be trekking with a group to the Base Camp of Mount Everest which lays at an altitude of 17,600 ft above sea level. The trip will last just over two weeks from the 17th of February until the 4th of March. Any money I raise in completing the trek will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust in memory of Matt Rieley, an ex-student of our school, who sadly passed away in May 2016. Matt was such a huge part of many people’s lives in East Grinstead, especially within the Sackville community. Matt fought his illness with courage, determination and never lost his sense of humour – he was an inspiration to many.
Anyone wishing to donate to Oliver’s trek should visit the Just Giving link here. We look forward to an assembly on the trip upon your return!
