‘Team Emily’ has been set up by Emily’s parents to oversee all of the different fundraising activities that are happening over the next few months in memory of Emily Pattison. Team Emily plans to gather together to remember Emily and the way she lived her life as well as raising awareness of, and funds for, Scott House and the work of the Sick Children’s Trust. Scott House can support up to 19 families a night, 365 days a year, keeping them close to their seriously ill children whilst undergoing treatment at the Freeman Hospital. Over the last year, this Home from Home has supported more than 400 families.


On 8 June, three of our students – Sam Yates, Adam Herne and Lewis Eke – successfully completed the Great North Swim-Run-Swim for Team Emily. Miss O’Neill also completed the Great North Swim, Great North 10km and the Great North Run for Team Emily.  If you would like to make a post-event donation please visit the Just Giving page:

There will be an end-of-summer party at Craik Park, the home of Morpeth Town Football Club where Emily played football, on 30 August for Emily’s friends and family. This will act as a fundraiser for the 20 runners taking part in the Great North Run for Team Emily. The Great North Run takes place on 8 September.
