“Heads up for Kate – The Virtual Everest Challenge”.

Kate who was Headteacher at Christ the King Primary school in Wavertree Merseyside passed away after a short illness at the age of 40 last year.

Kate was a tremendous ambassador and champion of RainbowsGB.

In Kate’s memory, family, friends, colleagues, schoolchildren, and their parents raised donations of over £1500.00 for Rainbows Bereavement Support GB (RainbowsGB). Here is a link to the original Post:

To commemorate what would have been Kate’s 41 birthday a new fundraising “challenge” has been started by many of her Friends, Family and Colleagues.

It is called “Heads up for Kate – The virtual Everest Challenge”.

Donations can be made (or even join in the Challenge) here:

And these intrepid “virtual mountaineers” have already raised almost £2500.00 in donations in the first 24 Hours

Well done to all involved, your support will help RainbowsGB to continue in its vision which is quite simply “that every child and young person in every school in Great Britain, grieving a significant and often devastating loss in their lives, to be understood and supported appropriately.”

What a great legacy to Kate Griffin.
