Education Support Partnership
We are the only charity dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of the entire education workforce. Initially established 140 years ago as a benevolent fund for teachers, but today supporting those in higher education and further education as well as schools, we understand the unique pressures of working in education. We give people working in education the support they need to feel at their best; and organisations the help they need to engage, energise and support their teams. We champion good mental health and wellbeing of teachers, lecturers, school leaders and support staff throughout their careers and during retirement as well as supporting education leaders with a wide range of tools to help improve professional and organisational development too.

50 peaks for 50 years - Remembering Graham

Chris Saunders

My page:

I am raising funds for Teacher Support Network by walking up 50 Lake District peaks in 2011. It was a trip that my close friend Graham Hollows and I had planned to do together during our 50th year, before he died suddenly in November 2009.

Teacher Support Network is one of the charities that Graham supported, and helps members of the teaching profession and their families.

Please sponsor me, and even better, join me on one of my walks.

25.09 Progress Update: 50 Peaks achieved! In miserable weather, six of us climbed Whiteside and Helvellyn to celebrate 50 peaks and toast Graham at the top. Please help me get to a total of £5000.
