Tiffany’s marathon walk to thank life-saving Air Ambulance
While many charity events have fallen by the wayside thanks to COVID, one Homewood student was determined to set up her own fundraising marathon to say thank to the charity which helped save the life of a fellow student.
When Arts student Tiffany heard that Year 10 student Alfie had been very seriously injured in a road traffic accident during the October half term holiday, she set about trying to do something positive for Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex who helped to save his life by airlifting him to King’s College Hospital in London for emergency treatment.
Tiffany decided to undertake a sponsored 26-mile walk around Bewl Water over a couple of weekends prior to Christmas. As a result, the thoughtful teen raised a staggering £850 for the charity, which relies on donations to provide its vital service across the region.
Thankfully Alfie has made a remarkable recovery from his injuries, astonishing his doctors with his progress, and has been home for Christmas. He now faces a long period of rehabilitation for which he will have the support not only of his family but also amazing schoolmates like Tiffany and the whole Homewood community.
