Well done Alessandra!
Back in 2011 whist a student at St. Mary’s Alessandra Valle-Metaxas visited South Africa as part of the Bambisanani Partnership volunteering programme organised by the School. As with so many students the visit had a most profound effect on her and Alessandra has remained in contact and supported the partnership ever since.
Most recently she embarked on extensive training programme to compete in the Great North Run Half Marathon in order to raise funds for the partnership. All Alessandra’s hard work paid off as on Sunday she completed the event in the very respectable time of 2hrs 59mins, raising over £300 in the process.
