A massive ‘Well Done and Thank You’ to Student Councillor, Jack Dawson (7LC) who raised over £200 towards new PE equipment for the school.
The Student Council have been discussing ideas for fundraising so when Jack was given the opportunity to take part in a 5km run for the MU Foundation around the stadium and pitch at Old Trafford, he was inspired to chose Maryhill High School as his chosen benefactor.
Jack completed the run with his cousin on Sunday 3 July 2011 in around half an hour in extremely hot sunny conditions!
Jack said “I really enjoyed it and would like to do it again – but on a cooler day next time! The worst part was that I was made to wear a Manchester United shirt because the event was at Old Trafford but I support Stoke City!”
Mr and Mrs Dawson, Jack’s parents are incredibly proud of him, as is everyone at Maryhill High School.
