St Silas CE Primary School Team for MNDA

About the group

Len Johnrose, a former teacher at St Silas' CE Primary School, Blackburn and footballer for a number of high profile clubs such as Blackburn Rovers, Burnley and Swansea City, was diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease earlier in 2018. In a bid to support Len, and raise awareness of the illness, some members of staff (past and present), are walking the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks (24 miles) in May. We are doing this to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association who fund research into future treatments of this incurable disease.
