MOVE FOR MATT – Challenge
School News
Monday 7th June 2021

Earlier this year Matthew Bacon, in Y10, collapsed while at home.  He was quickly diagnosed as having a bleed to the brain.

This was a huge shock to the family and Matthew was rushed to hospital for an emergency operation to relieve the pressure caused by the bleed. Matthew spent 13 weeks in the hospital receiving acute care from the children’s nursing team.

The good news is that Matthew is now home and is making remarkable progress, he is due back into hospital very soon to have more treatment.

Matthew’s family have asked us to help raise some funds for the wonderful Children’s Hospital. We know Matthew loves sport and is normally very active so we have decided to travel the entire circumference of planet Earth on foot in the 30 days of June!!

Staff and Year 10 students at Wickersley School and Sports College are taking on the challenge as well as students and staff at his old Primary School, Bramley Grange. #moveformatt.
