"Black and Gold forever" (Greg James' Message, Sunday)

We will be collecting for former student Greg James' cause today and Monday. Look out for the collectors. Let's get behind our former student.

Owing to severe weather in Scotland, Greg could not cycle to Scotland and climb Ben Nevis. He is very disappointed but he has raised 1/2 million pounds for young people's mental health support via Sport Relief.

This has given so many people so much hope and inspiration this week as well as raising money and awareness.

It is very interesting how people have been inspired in their life challenges by Greg's journey this week. They have been given hope to keep going in their peddling and climbing in their life.

There is also something very appropriate given the cause and situation about Greg listening to expert advice yesterday about the final leg of the challenge. This was not easy for him but conditions were not good in Scotland and on Nevis.   He will be back very soon to take on Ben Nevis though! As Greg said yesterday, it became about more than his personal challenge. It became about encouraging a nationwide conversation about mental health. All the  messages on social media talk about Greg with so much positivity.

Greg did amazingly to do ALL of this:

Be inspired!

We have so many former students doing so well in their communities. Greg also uses his success to give back to and benefit others.

Thank you also for your great support of World Zero Discrimination Day yesterday. It is much appreciated. So wonderful to see our students support this.

With every good wish

Yours sincerely
