Team story

[p]DOWNS House is fundraising![/p][p]For nearly 30 years, GGS has undertaken a 13 mile sponsored walk to support charities chosen by the School and particular school needs.[/p][p]Every year we raise funds for the GGS School Development Fund which supports projects around the school, most recently to develop the school’s picnic area which is also used as the Combined Cadet Force parade ground. The other charity that we are supporting this year is The Chartwell Cancer Trust. This charity supports cancer care for patients (adults and children) in Kent, Bromley and South East London. For more information, [url=https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uC6TEFsLHYVEsX3V_97mPrgFUCNVtoSXO8NIm8-wj4U/edit]please click here[/url].[/p][p]Unfortunately, this year, due to Coronavirus and the lockdown, it is not possible for us to walk. However, in order to keep the tradition going and in true GGS spirit, we have decided to follow the concept that the London Marathon fundraisers adopted but instead of focussing on '26' we are going to focus on the number ‘13’ (the distance of the sponsored walk). During the week beginning 13th July, students and staff will be asked to take part in the '13 Challenge' - doing anything they like that represents the number 13. [/p][p]Please help us to raise as much money as possible for these charities by donating and, hopefully, helping Downs House to raise the most money! [/p][p][br][/p]
