Fundraising for Myatt Garden

Three of our fabulous parents are planning a sponsored walk to raise money to support the school, specifically to support the school in bolstering its technology resources. 

On July 3rd, John Beech (dad of Albie), James Dutson (dad of Emilia) and Brian Garvan (dad of Magnus and Rory) will all attempt to complete the Welsh 3,000s challenge in a day.

The challenge involves reaching the peak of all 15 of the mountains over 3,000ft in Wales within the space of 24 hours, without using any form of transport. The walk which begins at the foot of Snowden, is 32 miles in length and includes a total ascent and descent of over 4,000m – equivalent to half of the altitude of Everest. The estimated time to complete it – for someone who is fit and active – is 22 hours. More often this challenge is attempted over three days. 

Over the last year, Myatt Garden has faced the extremely difficult challenge of trying to give all of its pupils the same educational opportunities whilst contending with very different levels of access to technology, the internet, and a quiet space in which to work. Increasing the school’s technology resources will enhance teaching and learning throughout the school, as well as empowering the children to use technology as a tool through computer lessons. 

These ambitious dads are hoping to raise £8,800 to purchase a smart-charging trolley and a set of 15 new laptops.

If you feel you would like to help, you can sponsor their walk so that we can make this possible. To make it easy to donate you can use the Friends of Myatt Garden donation page: or scan the QR code here: QR code

All donations will then be forwarded to the school and can benefit from gift aid.

Massive thanks to John, James and Brian, we’ll all be cheering you on!
