On Bank Holiday Monday, 18 members of staff and five Year 12 boys participated in the Belfast Marathon Relay and 8 Mile Walk. All members of Team Nendrum, wearing their white shirts sponsored by Premier Sports in Comber, battled the wind and rain to complete their leg of the marathon.
The Team were completing the race in memory of our dear friend and colleague Mrs Lesley Scates who sadly was involved in a fatal road traffic collision in October. Mrs Scates was involved in fundraising for The Net Youth Project in Comber, a Youth for Christ drop in centre who work with many of the pupils of Nendrum College and the town. After her family, Mrs Scates’ passion was sport, so it was felt fitting that the staff participate in a sporting event to help raise money to support the work of The Net.
The pupils of Nendrum College, the town of Comber, and friends and family of the College and staff have all been very supportive in our fundraising efforts. If you would still like to support Team Nendrum, please send cheques to the school made payable to Nendrum College and mark it ‘FAO Team Nendrum’. Thank you to everyone for your support.
