THOMAS’ FANTASTIC FUNDRAISING FOR CHARITY

12 June 2023  |  Jill Lundberg  |  Posted in:

Thomas, in Year 7, has clocked up four fantastic fundraising events in support of Cancer charities. Thomas and his family started to support Cancer charities after Thomas’ Uncle Stuart Rasbeary, who also went to Richmond School, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. Unfortunately, Stuart passed away in May 2017, which is why Thomas, along with his family including his Aunty Jenny, is determined to carry on raising as much money and awareness for Blood Cancer as he can.

Thomas started fundraising for Cancer Research in 2019 when he did his first muddy obstacle 3K Junior Warrior run, Junior Warrior, raising £267.50

In 2021, Thomas grew his hair and had then had it cut to make wigs for the Little Princess Trust. As this was in lockdown, and he knew lots of young people were suffering, he chose to split the £252.50 he had raised between Cancer Research UK and Youngs Minds.

In 2022, Thomas took on his biggest challenge yet, The Yorkshire Three Peaks. He did this with his mum, dad, grandparents, younger sister Molly and little brother Arthur. The challenge is to complete the 25 miles walk in 12 hours and he managed to do it in 11 hours and 36 minutes and raised an incredible £1978.75, this time for Blood Cancer UK.

Thomas’ most recent fundraiser was the Race for Life Pretty Muddy Kids 5K obstacle run in Leeds which he completed with his younger brother and sister, and in doing so raised £342.50 for Cancer Research UK

Before Thomas joined Richmond School, along with his friend Jonty, he raised £221.42 for the Ukraine Appeal by selling, I Stand with Ukraine stickers at his primary school.
