SIX friends of a Royston teacher who died suddenly last year have undertaken a 100km walk in his memory.
Paul Bushell, who was a teacher at The Meridian School, died last summer from a brain tumour at the age of 42.
The group of walkers, five of whom teach at Meridian, walked from London to Brighton, raising £3,000 from sponsorship which they are donating to the Brain Tumour Charity.
Sarah Webb, one of the party, said: “We hobbled into Brighton Marina having walked the 100km over three days, soaking wet from the rain, exhausted and sporting some rather nasty blisters!
“It was a truly memorable experience and what makes it all worthwhile is that we raised over £3,000 for The Brain Tumour Charity as a result. Paul was a great man and this was even more apparent in how many individuals felt moved to sponsor us for this walk.
“We would like to thank everyone who supported us and helped us make it to the end in one piece!”
