Ex-Rye College student, Connie Eldon, is raising money for the Meningitis Research Foundation through running the Hackney Half-Marathon, and taking part in the 'Exeter Takes On Everest Base Camp' challenge.

Rye College are hosting a non-uniform day and a cake sale to help her raise money. If you would like to donate, please visit Connie's everydayhero by clicking the link below:
