Jake Spooner – to Russia with love

Jake Spooner

Excellent news that 2014 Yeargroup Ambassadors Jake Spooner and Kaiya Kim-Saville (of whom more in aweek or two) are getting organised for their big yeargroup reunion in London on Friday 1st February 2018.

Jake got back a few weeks ago from driving with two mates (aka The Mendip Explorers) on a 10,000 mile rally from the Czech Republic to Ulan Ude in Russia, raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust in particular memory of Niall Mellis, another Wells boy and a dear friend who lost his life to cancer at the age of 18. They drove a Fiat Panda (named Fortuna) and made it despite six major breakdowns.

At Wells, Jake was Head Boy, Captain of Boys’ Tennis and won many awards, both for academic achievement and in sport and outdoor activities.

After Wells and a gap year, Jake went to Oxford Brooks University and gained a first in International Business Management. He has now started as a Business Development Manager for The Goat Agency –“ the world’s fastest growing influencer marketing agency, working with top global brands to drive guaranteed results”.

We greatly look forward to seeing him and his yeargroup with many other OWs and Wells staff at the RAF Club.
