The staff at Forest Gate Community School will be 'walking all over cancer' during the month of March. They endeavour to complete 10,000 steps a day for 31 days to raise money for Cancer Research.
The school community has been affected by cancer in the last year having lost their dear colleague, Shamimara Uddin, last August after a brave fight against the disease. They are delighted however to have Samantha Cole, Student Manager, back at work and in remission after a battle against the disease. Samantha is joining the 15 staff who are taking on the physical challenge.
Samantha says "I am one of the lucky ones. I had the support of a wonderful family and fantastic work colleagues and friends who helped get me through treatment.
I count my blessings every day that I am healthy and back to living my life, and now I want to give something back, so being able to do this with my work colleagues is really exciting, We will be walking all over cancer."
