At the end of this term, Fourth Form pupil Angus Caton passed away after a long battle with Cancer. In memory of Angus, the Caton family and members of the Dean Close community are raising money for CLIC by walking from the gates of Dean Close School to Pembrokeshire, over 200 miles. CLIC Sargent helps families limit the damage cancer causes beyond their health, they provide specialist support, to help and guide each young cancer patient and their family.

Everyone is warmly welcome to join the family for sections of the walk.

In a message to the Dean Close community, Angus’ family said that ‘Dean Close is a lake of calm and warm peaceful water’ that Angus thought of as his ‘happy place’ and this is why the walk will commence from the Dean Close gates.

If you are able to contribute to the cause click here for more details.

How to get involved:

On Saturday August 1st (8am), the Caton family will set off on a 210 mile walk from Dean Close School to Deer Park in Pembrokeshire, which looks out over Skomer Island, which was Angus’s favourite view, via the Forest of Dean, and Brecon Beacons. They hope for as many other supporters as possible to join them!

As well as a charity event, it is also a time for Angus’ family and friends to reflect on Angus’ life and to also celebrate it.

Please see below route maps in case any of you would like to get involved along the way. It would be amazing to see as many people as possible on the 1st of August to wave the group off or walk some of the way.
