QEH Juniors Year 5 boys, Freddie, Felix, Harri, Eddie and Henry are covering 5km, 5 days a week for 5 weeks to raise £5,000 for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

Freddie explains why they’re doing this.

“We were asked to create a presentation for English on a person who we find inspirational. I love Rugby, as do my friends, and I researched the amazing players from the past. I found some footage of Doddie Weir and watched the footage of him being injured on the Lions tour. I thought he was amazing, putting the Lions team above his own aspirations. A true sportsman.”

“That was enough to make me think how much I would love to be that kind of player. Then I found out about Doddie’s diagnosis with MND and the amazing work he has been doing for his charity My Name’5s Doddie. Now I felt I had to do something. So with the amazing enthusiasm of my great friends at school, we have set out a challenge,” he continued.

“Eddie, Felix, Henry and Harri are joining me, Freddie, in our 5’s challenge. As 5 Year 5 boys, we are going to complete a 5km distance, 5 days a week for 5 weeks. We want to raise a really ambitious £5000.”

The boys are now in training, so they’re ready to for their challenge in the summer term. We are so proud of them for doing this and wish them well as they embody the QEH motto, Whilst we have time, let us do good.

Thank you Friends of QEH!

QEH has fulfilled its role in turning out a well-rounded young man able to take his place in the world  . . . not one simply packed full of facts.  He has the ability to think for himself and to turn those thoughts into effective actions.
