On Sunday 26th September at 10.00 Patrice Legros, french teacher at Merrydays Montessori Nursery and Henley in Arden Montessori Primary school will be running a half marathon, 22km around Kenilworth, Warwickshire.

Patrice has chosen to use this opportunity to raise funds for specialist equipment to support the education of one of our primary pupils, Holli.

Holli was born 6 weeks premature following a stroke weighing just 3lb 4oz, as a result Holli developed Cerebral Palsy on the right side of her body, Epilepsy and she is partially sighted. Throughout all this, Holli is one of the happiest most determined little girls with an amazing passion for life. She attended the nursery since she was 2 years old, now nearly 5 years old she attends the primary school. She loves going to her Montessori school always arriving with lots of news and a smile.

Patrice ran his first half marathon (The Great North Run) 8 years ago , taking 2 hours 35 minutes. This time he is hoping to run it in 2 hours.

So far, he has raised over £300.00.

To donate please send your cheques payable to “Merrydays Montessori” marking your envelopes “Running for Holli” Merrydays Montessori, Memorial Hall, Station Road, Henley in Arden, B95 5JP.
