In 2020 due to the pandemic, this event couldn’t take place in the usual way.

Undeterred, one of our runners, Stuart Clarke completed it virtually, in his own time and raised over £2,700! A phenomenal amount and we are so grateful to him. More amazing participants also completed their runs and were are all stars for taking on the challenge!

This year’s event is scheduled to take place on 12 September 2021.

Who are we?

The Friends of Downs View School has been established since 1992 and as a Charity supports Downs View School. The committee consists of Parents, Carers, Staff and Friends and is run entirely on a voluntary basis.

The Aims are to fund raise for extra or specialist equipment, provide social activities for the students and their families, instigate fund raising activities and other events, i.e. training for the Parents/Carers and Pupils of the school. Money raised is invested in the school for the benefit of the students. We assist with the provision of educational facilities which are not funded by the Local Education Authority. We also liaise and develop partnerships with local companies, charities and community groups to benefit the pupils at the School.

What we have achieved so far

From our Fund raising efforts we have been able to purchase a variety of items for the school including: new mini buses, new play area, specialist equipment, a Backlit interactive whiteboard, PECS playground communication boards, bike shed, bikes, assistance with school holidays, tandem bikes, equipment for a common room and furnish a gym for the 16 – 19 year olds. We also fund Discos, Fun Days and a leavers Prom for the pupils and their families.
