Last year, the community around Bedales School - where Cecily was educated - gathered a team of 34 runners to take part in the Great South Run in Portsmouth. This huge fundraising effort raised over £8,000 which was split equally between Cecily's Fund and the John Badley Foundation.
This October, a new team of Bedales staff, pupils, parents and alumni will return to Portsmouth and the Great South Run. The event takes place on October 21 and 22, and a Pledgit fundraising page is open now.
"As one of the runners in the Great South Run last year I am delighted that we are going to organise a repeat once again this year [...] raising some good money for the two excellent causes being the John Badley Foundation and Cecily's Fund."
Stephen Walls, Bedales parent
Once again, Pledgit and the Country House Company are generously matching the first £1,000 raised - with your support, the Bedales community can beat their fantastic 2017 total, and Cecily's Fund can make an even greater impact this year!
