Gallery: Celebratory School Walk

Category: General

Over 1,000 pupils, parents, Old Marlburians and members of Common Room took part in the Celebratory School Walk on Sunday 17th September.

The event was held to raise funds for ShelterBox, The Kipungani Schools Trust and the Marlborough College Bursary Appeal - raising over £75,000 to be split evenly between the charities.

The whole school took on the challenge of a 20-mile route, whilst the Shell completed a slightly shorter 14-mile circuit.

The Master of Marlborough College, Jonathan Leigh, commended the efforts of all involved:

"It was a wonderful and memorable occasion. The Marlborough College community of current and past pupils, parents and staff all came together to raise funds for these worthwhile causes.

"The weather was excellent and the whole event passed off in the best of spirits."

The first Marlborough College Charity Walk took place in 1970 and arose from the initiative of a group of Sixth Form pupils.
