Heads up for Kate – The Virtual Everest Challenge

Dear parents/carers,

As a school, we are going to be taking part in a fundraiser in memory of the Headteacher of Christ the King Primary School, Kate Griffin. The fundraiser will be raising money for Rainbows UK, a charity that supports children through bereavement. This is an organisation that has supported many of our children throughout the years.

In year group teams, we will be trying to climb the equivalent of Mount Everest by doing simple activities such as; running, dancing and climbing stairs. We will be trying to get as far as we can and seeing which year group can get the furthest. We will be completing this challenge in school, but you can join in at home as well! We will be ticking off boxes as we go on the sheet attached.

We have started a Virgin Money page here for you to sponsor us. Any donation, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated. It is for an amazing cause and your support will help RainbowsGB to continue in its vision which is quite simply “that every child and young person in every school in Great Britain, grieving a significant and often devastating loss in their lives, to be understood and supported appropriately.”

Here is the link to our donation page:


Thank you for your support, and we hope you enjoy supporting this challenge!

Mrs Moscardini,

Rainbows Co Ordinator
