Staff walk 25 miles for School Charities

On Saturday 25th May, 20 WHS staff members will be walking 25 miles through the Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire countryside, immortalised by Flora Thompson in her trilogy Lark Rise to Candleford, to raise money for our School charities Katharine House Hospice and Helen & Douglas House.

The walk will start and finish at WHS but will pass through the village of Evenley, the unnamed market town mentioned in Lark Rise. The staff hope to complete the distance in under 10 hours and will be well supported by other members of the WHS community. You can follow us on the day by our Instagram feed (winchesterhouseschool) or, even better, meet us en route (click here for details of the route).

On Friday 24th May, we will be holding a sponsorship push and bucket collect on the school drive during morning 'drop off' for parents and children to make any donations. We also have a Virgin Giving Page set up for further sponsorship and contributions:
