Penrice Guides for Guide Dogs

On the 4th June, four of our Year 11 students – Sam Kendall, Chelsea Tinnion, Zoe Taylor and Marisa McCormack – together with ex-Penrice student Hannah Morcom, are taking part in a sponsored walk for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

The girls held a Cake Sale in the Hall on Thursday 19th May to get them started, and they’re aiming to raise £500 for this hugely worthwhile charity.

As members of the 2nd St Austell Senior Section group, they will undertake a 4 mile walk finishing in Aylmer Square in St Austell.

Mrs Gouldsmith, District Commissioner, explains: “This is no ordinary walk! Together with another team member, Emily Jones, 5 members of the team will be wearing special glasses so they will appear to be visually impaired and the sixth person, who will be able to see, will act as the lead along the Pentewan cycle trail.”

“The work these girls do within their units and as a Senior Section group is amazing and as a district we are very proud of them!”
