Linpark head boy, Eyona Teto was instrumental in driving the monetary collection
for Collin Pitts. Mr Pitts, a form Linpark High School learner was stabbed in the
head with a screw driver, on 11 June 2014, while assisting a lady who was being mugged.
This previous workshop manager and Chairman of the Midlands Ski-boat fishing club,
as a result of his altruistic actions is completely paralysed. Various operations
have stabalised his condition and he is able to communicate with eye movements.
After hearing about the many challenges the Pitts family encountered; Eyona together
with the Linpark High School RCL set out to help the family. Learners from the school
dug deep into their pockets to contribute to the RCL fundraising endeavours. A healthy
sum of money was collected to support Collin’s further treatment. Linpark High School
