Finally rescheduled, after COVID restrictions last summer, Annabelle will begin her 10 day hike up Mount Kilimanjaro on 28th August this year. We’re hoping that our current Pennthorpe community can help Annabelle raise the last few pounds she needs to reach her target, which will support the Meningitis Research Foundation in their aim to have a cure for meningitis by 2030.

Parents and pupils may remember that Annabelle was due to take on the challenge last summer, but due to travel restrictions at the time she has had an extra 12 months to train for this gruelling challenge.

Anabelle joined Pennthorpe in 2005, and has really happy memories of her time here.
