THE message to charity hill-climbers at Horsenden Hill today were: “We’re taking a walk in the park for those in Nepal whose lives are far from a walk in the park.”

Those were the words of Ian Chappory, teacher at St Augustine’s Priory, Ealing, about the Fundraising Friday climb for Nepal.

Year 10 girls and staff were raising money for the relief operation in Nepal which will then be added to funds collected at last Friday’s event, Building a Bridge to Nepal.

It raised more than £400 by laying a line of £1 coins from one from one end of the cloisters corridor to the other.

Both events are the initiative of Year 10 pupils and follow on a recent collection of 150 bags of clothing to be sent to Nepal.

St Augustine’s Priory is a Catholic Independent Day School for girls aged 3-18 in Hillcrest Road, Ealing W5.
