Rossett School Awards

Rossett AwardsStudents’ successes and achievements were celebrated at Rossett School’s recent annual awards evening.

As well as highlighting the good work being done in school, the parents, teachers and guests present heard from Mark Allison, the British man who made national headlines after running 3,100 miles across the United States for charity earlier this year.

Mark, known as ‘Run Geordie Run’, averaged 31 miles per day over 100 days on his route from California to New York City, covering 13 states and through extreme conditions from heat to snow.

“He’s a great role model and I was delighted when he agreed to come and talk at our presentation evening,” said Rossett School’s deputy headteacher, Mr Paul McIntosh.

“We held a raffle on the night which, along with our school contribution, raised £650 which we’re giving to The Children’s Foundation – Mark’s chosen charity. Special thanks must go to Restaurant Bar and Grill in Harrogate for their prize donation of a meal for two.”

Mr McIntosh added: “I’d also like to thank David Morgan and his team at the Holiday Inn in Harrogate. They very kindly put Mark up in the hotel free of charge so that he could be with us – we very much appreciate their support.”

Mark Allinson also spoke about his next challenge – a 2,600-mile ‘jog’ across Australia in 2013.
