Staff challenge - 50 Miles in March.

29th March 2021

The staff of Shaftesbury Nursery School are each walking or running 50 miles (maybe more!) during the month of March. We know that this will be good for our own health and wellbeing. The main motivation for completing this challenge however, is to raise funds to support the work of the charity Motor Neurone Disease Association – Northern Ireland Branch. The MND Association:

  • Provides care and support for people with MND and their carers
  • Funds vital research into causes, treatments and a cure for MND
  • Campaigns and raises awareness of MND.

One of our School governors – Mr Colm Davis sadly passed away in January after battling MND. Colm was a brilliant and kind man and also a wonderful advocate for the MND association. He contributed immensely to Shaftesbury Nursery School during his tenure as School Governor.

We feel as a staff team that the 50 Miles in March is an appropriate way to remember our friend Colm and to continue to raise awareness of MND.
