In memory of Nick Matthews

Posted In Charity, General

Early in December, we received the sad news that loyal Bethanians’ Society member, Nick Matthews, passed away having lived with the debilitating effects of Motor Neurone Disease.

Nick’s son Andy is running the length of The Strawberry Line in North Dorset in memory of his father, and raising money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MDNA) in the process. Please help him reach his goal and support the charity that is working tirelessly to further understanding of an under-researched disease.

You can read Andy’s pledge and donate money on his JustGiving page.

Nick attended Bethany from 1964-1970, and remained close to the School, regularly attending events and always keen to share his stories of both his time at Bethany and his busy life since leaving. Nick will be remembered both as a creative man, with a power of words that came through in his poetry, and as an educator, always keen to share knowledge and wisdom.
