Manchester High School for Girls

Staff runners raise £5,000

Almost 20 current and former members of Manchester High staff successfully completed the Greater Manchester 10km on Sunday 19th May.

Dr Hoban and Mrs Ousey assembled a team to raise money for two charities; an eating disorder charity called BEAT and the mental health charity, MIND. The initiative was in memory of Hannah Bharaj, a former student who tragically lost her life after a prolonged illness. Dr Hoban said: “Hannah was a super student, intelligent, fun-loving and kind. She touched the hearts of many staff here at Manchester High. The atmosphere throughout the course was fantastic and helped to carry us through. We all had a brilliant day raising money and remembering a lovely girl. I'd like to express my thanks to all those who have donated, the runners and I are very grateful for your support."

The Manchester High medal went to Mr Goulding, who completed the course in just 45 minutes and 43 seconds. He was closely followed by Mr McDaid, Mr Bradley, Mr Jones, Mr Norris, Mr Kingsley, Mrs Inglis, Dr Bushell, Dr Hoban, Mr Eaton, Ms Wells, Mrs Haves, Mrs Heydecker, Mrs Tucker, Mrs Hobson, Mrs Roberts and Miss Large.

In addition, Mr Norris, Mrs Taylor and Mrs Ousey completed the Manchester Marathon in April. Mrs Taylor and Mrs Ousey ran together, completing the course in three hours, 53 minutes and seven seconds. Mr Norris, who only started running properly in September crossed the line in just over five hours.

The whole Manchester High community is incredibly proud of the team who have raised over £5,000 for the two charities. You can still donate here.
