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.
