Date published: 25 May 2018

St Joseph's primary school's intrepid deputy head Steve Hill MBE is loaded up and ready to go off on another incredible charity challenge.

Steve, who recently completed the gruelling Arctic Ice Ultra Marathon and before that has taken in expeditions up Mount Kilimanjaro, Mont Blanc and trekking through the Sahara Desert, is now heading off to Africa tomorrow (Saturday) to compete in the Uganda Marathon.

Steve jets out tomorrow and will spend a week in Masaka, where he will undertake a number of charity projects at the local primary school, the hospital and health care centre.

Steve (pictured above at school in Shaw) will also be helping to organize and deliver a sports day for over 300 of the children from the local villages.

On June 2, Steve will then be running the Uganda Marathon to help raise awareness of these local projects.

Ahead of his latest epic adventure, Steve asked people in the Oldham community for donations of running trainers and t-shirts, which he will be taking to Uganda to distribute amongst those in Masaka.
