Last October Robert underwent surgery for kidney cancer and, thanks in the main to the skill of the wonderful NHS staff in Brighton, the operation was a total success. To mark his return to full health, he tramped over the South Downs in early March from Brighton College to the town of Lewes some nine miles away.
And he had company – a group comprising pupils, their parents and some fellow teachers (and their dogs!) joined him on what turned out to be a simply glorious Spring day.
What could have been a real slog turned out to be a lovely (if tiring, for Robert!) Sunday walk. More importantly, more than £3,200 was raised for Extra Cover, which, among many other things, will help children like Hayshan (see below).
