Mr. Unsworth's 10 Mile Fundraiser!

As a way of helping the school raise money for a great cause, one of our teaching assistants, Mr Unsworth, decided to run 10 miles to work today!

Eskdale Academy have been holding fundraising events to raise money for Derek Allen.

"In March 2019 Derek was told he had a blood cancer called multiple myeloma which was very rare in an adult of his age. (39) Derek then started his first round of chemo after being told by his consultant that this cancer couldn’t be cured but treated. Life expectancy of around 7 years was given. Derek has now had 5 failed chemotherapy treatments including a stem cell transplant. Derek’s only option now is car-T treatment which is thousands of pounds and would be performed in America."
