Richard Feast Memorial Mile 2015

Richard Feast Memorial Mile 2015

In August last year, a very special teacher and member of the community, Mr Feast, passed away. It was very clear at the time that members of the college past and present, wanted to find a way to show how much he meant to them. The college wish to celebrate his life and outstanding contribution to the college and community by holding an event which all our staff and students can get involved in. On Friday 1st May,  the college timetable was collapsed from 1.30pm so that all can be involved in this Memorial Mile.

In the end, over 800 members of the college ran, jogged, walked and space hopped their way around the 1 mile course on the school site. 6th from BTEC students warmed the participants up with a highly energetic warm up.. The idea is to raise as much money in sponsorship as we can for Mr Feast’s chosen charity Plymouth’s Oncology ward and also funds for a permanent memorial which will be placed in the college grounds. Thanks to some excellent support from our local business community,  all participants received a medal sponsored by Miller Countrywide Sales and Lettings and, due to support from 3663, also received a “FEAST” ice cream bar!

We are aiming to raise over £6000 and this is just one of many events we have either already completed or are planning over the course of this academic year.
