    With the first brick still to be laid of Gordon’s new sports complex, Buckingham’s Head of House Jamie Sinclair has already committed to raising £3,000 to equip it. On April 28th next year he will run the London Marathon. However, Mr Sinclair has set himself the added challenge of running it in less than three hours to set a new personal best. The energetic Science teacher has completed a few ultra and trail events for charity including the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon in September in which he raised over £1,300 for Woking Hospice commented: “I really wanted to do something closer to home, that my friends and family have easy access to, and so can come and cheer me on. When the opportunity to raise money for the new Gordon’s School sports complex and more precisely equipment that all the school and local community can benefit from, I jumped at it”.  Mr Sinclair can be sponsored through Virgin Money Giving: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/jamiesinclair3.
