Sponsored Climb of Tinto Hill – 9th June

One of our young students, 11 year old Roxanne Graham, recently passed away after a battle with a rare Synovial Sarcoma cancer.  Roxanne was an inspirational student who showed grit and determination throughout her battle will this rare disease.
We hope to inspire our students, as much as Roxanne inspired us all, by completing the sponsored climb in her memory, showing everyone can be AS TOUGH AS ROXX, with their determination to complete the climb.

When:  Saturday 9th June 2018

Where:  Tinto Hill, Thankerton, ML12 6PD

Time:  10am (to be confirmed)

Tinto Hill is the graceful cone shaped hill on Lanarkshire’s southern horizon. At 707 metres it is the highest point in central Scotland and the perfect introduction to hill walking.
The best reason for climbing Tinto hill is the excellent view. On the clearest days the view takes in the Lake District, the mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland, Ailsa Craig and Arran in the Firth of Clyde, the Arrochar Alps and as far north as Lochnagar in the Cairngorms.

We ask each student to personalise and carry take up a pebble / small rock to be placed at the top of the cairn, in her memory at the summit.
