I would like to thank the pupils at St Aidans School in Harrogate for raising over £2400 for MSF at their recent non-uniform day. Mr Dennis Richards the Headmaster of St Aidans very kindly invited me to speak to the pupils at a special assembly. This was very important to me for a number of reasons. First of all I appreciate any opportunity to talk about MSF and the amazing work they do globally. Second , St Aidans was my secondary school from 1978 – 1984. I was invited to talk after restablishing contact with my former Biology teacher the wonderful Byron Lewis. I would like to thank Byron and Sandra for making it possible for me to return to St Aidans and to talk to a very attentive and caring group of young people.
