The Big Walk 2022

Sponsor our students as they undertake a gruelling 72km walk in 24 hours, all to raise funds for our friends at Oak Field School in Nottingham!

On 11 June 2022, over 30 Ampleforth College students and staff will take on a gruelling 24 hour walk, through the night, from Whitby to Ampleforth, to encourage you to sponsor them so they can provide a grant to support students at Oak Field School to have special experiences or buy much needed equipment this year.

For over 15 years the Friendship Holiday has been an incredible partnership between the students of Ampleforth College and pupils at Oak Field School in Nottingham, a special needs school for children with physical and/or learning disabilities. The Year 12 Friendship Holiday students at Ampleforth are passionate about helping their friends at Oak Field to have experiences and support that wouldn’t be possible without the funds we raise each year. Activities we raise money for include a joint outing in the summer term to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, as well as donating funds to support Oak Field pupils for whom this outing is not possible but we can help in other ways.  

Support our students to extend this meaningful hand of friendship this year and help us create fantastic opportunities for our friends at Oak Field School.  Thank you.
