Steve takes Uganda by storm!

Date published: 07 June 2018

St Joseph's primary school deputy head Steve Hill MBE is back at work after recovering from his latest 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, has just been to Africa to compete in the Uganda Marathon.

Steve spent a week in Masaka, where he also got stuck into a number of charity projects at the local primary school (above), the hospital and health care centre.

Steve also helped organize and deliver a sports day for over 300 of the children from the local villages.

On June 2, Steve completed the Uganda Marathon to help raise awareness of these local projects.
