It’s That Time of Year Again…
…and this year, it’s the Wirral Way.
Each year, Mr Dickson embarks on a physical challenge in order to raise money for Christmas parties that will be hosted by our sixth form, one for pupils from Delamere Special School and one for local senior citizens.
In previous years, Mr. Dickson has climbed Ben Nevis and Helvellyn, trekked the punishing and treacherous Snowdon Horse Shoe, cycled the Trans-Pennine Trail and canoed the Bridgewater Canal; he has cycled from Urmston to the other side of Silverdale, crossing the three counties of Greater Manchester, Lancashire and into Cumbria; and, last year, he conquered the Yorkshire Three Peaks in under 12 hours.
Now in his sixtieth year, Mr. Dickson is still willing to meet a physical challenge, but – for the sake of his ailing knees – will be avoiding significant climbs and descents. Walking the Wirral Way from Hooton to West Kirby and back is a relatively flat route, but there will still be a similar mileage (approximately 24 miles) to cover as there was on last year’s Three Peaks trek. The hike is planned for the weekend of October 12th.
Each year, a goodly sum is raised, and it would be great if this worthy cause could again be supported by all connected with the school. A simple £1.00 donation from the families of each student would provide all the funding necessary (though feel free to give more if you like) and make Mr Dickson’s efforts worthwhile.
This year, please consider donating via ParentPay to ‘Mr Dickson’s Wirral Way Walk’. All such donations will be gratefully received and will help us to brighten up Christmas for those in our local community.
