Pas de problème! Miss Bassett and OQ Bex Hurley Conquer Paris

Thursday 9 March 2023

We are thrilled to report that Miss Bassett, Head of Year 8, along with Old Queenswoodian Bex Hurley, successfully completed the Harmonie Mutuelle Semi de Paris  -  the Paris Half Marathon on Sunday 5 March, finishing the 21.1km race in a stunning time of just 1 hour 42 minutes! 

Miss Bassett and Miss Hurley ran the race in support of Noah's Ark Children's Hospice, and as we go to print their most admirable efforts have raised in excess of £1,000. These vital funds will help seriously unwell children and their families to make the most of the special time they have together.

Miss Bassett and Miss Hurley are incredible role models for our students and we send them toutes nos félicitations!

There is still time to donate to Miss Bassett's Paris Half Marathon fundraiser, and you can find her JustGiving page here.
