Mr Goodyear taught English at Tong High School for many years. After a long battle with leukaemia, Mr Goodyear sadly passed away in July 2015. As a school, during the academic year 15/16 we were committed to raising money for two very special charities which are important to Mr Goodyear’s family and friends: The Annette Fox Unit at the B.R.I. and Bloodwise– Leukaemia Research.
Thanks to the support of pupils, staff, partners and families we are delighted to announce that we have been able to raise £2821.58 in memory of Mr Goodyear.
Throughout the year we held collections, hosted bun sales, book sales, raffles, sold badges and much more… our corporate Christmas Cards this year were bought from The Annette Fox Unit and in June alongside 5,000 triathletes staff member Rachel Le Borgne (Timetable, Assessment & Examinations Manager at Tong) entered the Leeds Triathlon. Rachel is raised £500.62 for Bloodwise.
Mr Goodyear was a dedicated teacher, friend and encourager. He enriched the lives of countless young people at Tong and he is sorely missed.
We know many others gave directly via Just Giving in memory of Mr Goodyear. We also know his friends recently raised and additional £2,000 for The Annette Fox Unit by doing an Iron Man challenge.
We would like to thank everybody for their support. If you would like to make a donation please visit https://www.justgiving.com/bloodwise orhttps://www.justgiving.com/aflr
