Lester's 'Hell on the Humber'

Music Teacher, Lester Bartlett, is raising money for The Ellie Penrose Fund

As well as his incredible musical talent, Lester Bartlett regularly challenges himself to his limits, all in the name of charity.  His latest challenge is to take on 'Hell on the Humber' in March (2024):

A few years ago I took part in 'Hell on the Humber' where basically you run/walk back and forth on the Humber Bridge (each return crossing is 4 miles) as many times as you can in the time you've chosen. I've chosen 9 hours this time and I hope to do 36 miles in the time. 

When I decided to look into doing it again, it dawned on me that 'Hell on the Humber' supports the Ellie Penrose Fund through some of their entry money and I thought considering Ellie was an old Hymerian who sadly passed away in 2015, it would be nice as a Hymers member of staff to try and raise some money for this very worthy cause. 

Ellie Penrose was a student at Hymers College for 10 years, starting in the Junior school in 2005.  She was a promising athlete and had represented Great Britain in triathlon.

The Ellie Penrose Fund was set up to remember Ellie Penrose and her love of sport, which she achieved to an international level. She died suddenly from Meningococcal Septicaemia in August 2015. She was 18 years old.

The Fund is to support young people aged 21 and under who require assistance to achieve their ambitions in sport, and who do not have the financial ability to do so.

The assistance given is for the purchase of essential equipment or kit that directly relates to their chosen sport.
