The intrepid School of English Literature graduates (2016) have raised £1,248, with many donations yet to come in. Thanks to everyone's generosity, during this challenge and the one last year, the team have already raised over £3,000 for the British Heart Foundation in memory of Dr Stephen Colclough, a much-loved senior lecturer in the School of English Literature. Megan, Kerry, Emma, Emma, and Jon are very touched by the support that they have received. The team said, ‘We were so spurred on by the response that we received last year when we did the eight routes of Snowdon in four days, that this year we decided to do one better on the crazy scale of charitable challenges that we could undertake, to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation. These challenges are just the beginning of the many that we hope to undertake as we continue to fundraise in Stephen's memory. We're already brainstorming for next year's!’
