Marathon Raises over £1000 for the Sally Walker Bursary Fund

Miss Lindsay completed her 100th marathon on Sunday 3 October 2021, which she ran in aid of the Sally Walker Bursary fund.

Miss Lindsay, who is a Teaching Assistant and swimming teacher at Finton House, ran her first ever marathon in London in 2003 – the marathon in which Paula Radcliffe broke the world record – which she finished in a time of 3:49:18. On 3rd October she completed her 100th marathon (and second ever virtual marathon) in a time of 4:08:28, starting and ending the race at Finton House. Finton families were able to follow her progress via the School Instagram, and a group of supporters greeted her at the finish line.

The Sally Walker Bursary fund is a cause close to our hearts. It was launched in 2007 in memory of Sally Walker, beloved Headmistress of Finton from 2002-2005 and former Head of SEN. The fund supports means-tested bursaries of up to 100% for children aged 7 and above. These bursaries, available each year, are for those who would benefit most from a Finton education but whose family would not otherwise be able to afford one.  To find out more about the Sally Walker Bursary please click here.
