At Fallibroome Academy, we have become increasingly aware of a number of people in our community who are fighting their own battle against cancer. The recent news about one of our teachers (Claire Smith) has had a big impact on everyone at Fallibroome, but Claire is not alone. Other members of our staff are either very ill currently, or have been so in the recent past. We also know that a number of our parents/families are facing similar challenges and we have been particularly saddened to hear of the serious challenges being faced by a number of our students too. The tragic passing of Max Ambrose-Morrison following a protracted battle with leukaemia was a particularly poignant moment this year.

As a school, we wanted to respond to these circumstances by raising funds for The Christie Hospital and East Cheshire Hospice.  To do so, we have set up a Just Giving page under the title of ‘Fallibroome Fights Cancer’ and we are asking everyone in our community to join this campaign and perhaps post their own messages of support to someone who is close to their thoughts at the moment.

We hope that you are able to join our efforts and that this will bring some comfort and support to all those associated with our school who find themselves fighting this terrible illness. We know that lots of activities are already being planned for this campaign so we look forward to hearing about everyone’s efforts and the money that has been raised for this worthy cause.
