Amelia Whitaker (nee Ringrose) - 1984

Since leaving school, Amelia have become passionate about helping to create events to support worthwhile causes. She loves power walking (was in the Gordonstoun Cross Country Team with Sarah Teasdale, Gordonstoun House 1985) and although Sarah, a good friend was much better than her at running, Amelia decided to take up power walking.  Amelia entered the 2006 Edinburgh Moon Walk for breast cancer, where she spotted Bruce house Master Ben Goss, cheering her on from the sidelines and decided that she should create something similar to the Moon Walk in the South West of Great Britain. Sarah Teasdale died of breast cancer, a few years ago now and Amelia believes that the Midnight Mermaid Walk is a wonderful challenge for old Gordonstonians to get back their fitness from the good old days of early morning runs and do something much kinder to our bodies than running and get walking!!!!

St Mawes is probably one of the  most charming yachting/fishing villages  in the south west (if not the most charming) and an excuse to come down here for the weekend, with family and friends and enter the 1st Midnight mermaid walk is not to be missed.

The cost of the walk/evening is £65 but to all Gordonstonians Amelia is able to offer a discount of £15 to the entry fee if one enters  the code Truro 13 when registering online. Please follow this link to register online for the Midnight Mermaid walk.
