Year 5 Junior School pupil, Freddie, said; "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'5 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 currently in training, ready to complete their challenge in the summer term.

Join us in wishing them the best of luck as they embody the QEH motto; Whilst we have time, let us do good.
