Llanishen High School Community are on their way to Patagonia (virtually) to support City Hospice.

Llanishen High School take on 100 Heroes challenge and are travelling all the way to Patagonia. A group of 300 of them (!!) and have raised over £1500 in the first week!

About Llanishen High’s Patagonia Challenge

 Llanishen High School are making the journey of 12,000km to Patagonia in aid of City Hospice, as part of their 100 Heroes Challenge.

Patagonia is ‘A Home from Home,’ a small slice of Wales that lives on in Argentina, South America. It has a population of over 50,000 people living with the Welsh culture and speaking the Welsh language! So it’s a perfect destination for their challenge!

The school have challenged themselves, as the staff group of Llanishen High School, calling on pupils, ex-pupils, parents and people of the wider community to get involved. Staff around the school are all getting involved including the team of caretakers! They can run, walk, cycle, skate and scoot their way to Patagonia and raise as much money as possible for such a fantastic charity that helps so many!

Along the way, there will be some special visits to Ex-Pupils. None more so than a stop off in Rio, where ex-pupil Elinor Barker won a Gold Medal in the 2016 Olympics.

Harry Trelawney, Head of PE at Llanishen High told us:

“It’s incredible that so many teachers, staff, pupils and ex pupils have taken on this challenge so willingly. It’s fantastic to get everyone out doing some exercise whether that be walking 10,000 steps or running 10k. Everyone’s collective effort is helping us get to Patagonia by the end of March!

City Hospice provides love and care for many members of our community and is close to our heart. We are delighted to be raising money to support the charity. At Llanishen High School are putting our ‘Heart & Sole’ into the 100 Heroes Challenge.”
