A huge thank you from Dr Harrison, Head of Music, to the many people from the Latymer community who contributed to my Samaritans fundraising as part of this trip at the end of August. In total nearly £11,000 has been raised, much of it donated by Latymer parents, colleagues and students. The trip was amazing: having never climbed a a mountain of any sort before, it was always going to take me way out of my comfort zone! Rainforest and monkeys on day one... and -12C, precious little oxygen, utter exhaustion and the most incredibleview at the summit five days later.
Thanks again for all the support. It's good to be back!
