By Your Side Walk

Rock star Mike Peters from the Alarm, and his wife Jules have are walking 130 miles across North Wales to raise money for NHS charity Awyr Las.

Mike and his wife Jules, who have both received a cancer diagnosis, lead the By Your Side Walk from Flint to the summit of Snowdon in June to give thanks to NHS staff who continue to provide treatment and care for them in North Wales.

On day Six of Mike Peters’ “By your side” charity walk, Mike addressed pupils and staff at Rhyl High School.

Mike Peters spoke of the progressive nature of Rhyl High School and how his life was transformed when one of the first ever computers to be used in UK education was installed in his Mathematics class, enabling Mike to sit and pass the first ever British O-Level course in Computer Studies.  His speech was based on the theme of determination and how the beginnings of The Alarm actually gave to life when a Geography Teacher, affectionately referred to as ‘Pete Geog’, asked if any pupils could play guitar and a young Mike Peters put himself forward.

So with determination and a host of committed Rhyl High School students and teachers (some of whom were engaged in their own struggles with cancer diseases), made their way through the backstreets of Rhyl and on to the promenade.
