Moonlight Walk Clocks up the Kilometres!
On Friday evening, a number of Cobham Hall girls and their parents said a big ‘Thank You’ to our Parent-Teacher Association, Unicorn, by taking part in a fundraising Sponsored Moonlight Walk. Incredibly, in total the girls completed a staggering 736.5km (or 457.64 miles!) - the equivalent of strolling from Dover to Zurich, Switzerland, or from the School to Scarborough and back!
Using money from events such as the Candlelit Ball and the Quiz Night, The Unicorn Association has recently refurbished the School’s Gym and the seating in the Drama Studio, as well funding the installation of a ‘Freedom Climber’ climbing wall. As a thank you, the PE Department organised a Sponsored Moonlight Walk.
Encouraging the girls to get into the spirit by wearing neon clothing, the event proved to be loud, colourful and highly enjoyable. The exuberance of the girls as they completed lap after lap in the School’s grounds, accompanied by music and with the anticipation of hotdogs and burgers to end the evening, was unfailing.
As light faded, glowsticks and lanterns lit the route, giving an added ambience to the event and a boost to those starting to flag. The best boost was yet to come: once sponsorship money began to roll in, the girls had raised an incredible £1175.
