Former Pupil Locryn Williams CO14 Needs Your Vote

Former Pupil Locryn Williams CO14 is in the running to enter the Fjallraven polar.

This is a race which involves a 300km race through Arctic wilderness with more than 200 highly skilled sled dogs and a group of ordinary people. Locryn is determined to be one of those ordinary people but needs your vote. The way the race works is that two people form each region are selected to enter, one of those two people is whoever gets the most votes, the second is picked by the Fjallraven Polar jury. Locryn is looking for votes to win the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg region and take on this amazing challenge, as you can imagine that is a lot of people fighting for 2 places! Locryn told us that he isn’t the best when it comes to asking for help but is reaching out to his old school community to help him secure as many votes as he can.

Locryn was a keen rugby player at school and was the captain of the U18 and Vice Captain of the U15’s Twickenham team. However, after a few head injuries and concussions Locryn was medically retired from the sport. Locryn told us that these concussions he suffered with his mental health and being as he is, struggled to talk about it. Locryn began rock climbing as a way of rehabilitation and began adventuring around amazing locations such as Iceland and Snowdonia. Locryn told us that Adventure helped rekindle his self-belief, gave him purpose and made him believe he could keep on.

Let’s show Locryn what our Truro School Community can achieve – every vote matters – so please forward this to your friends – share it far and wide and help get Locryn into the race and support his incredible journey. The voting closes on 13 December so act fast!
