Year 7 and Year 8 students and staff assembled along the frontage at West Site this afternoon to cheer on the cyclists competing in the OVO Energy Women’s Cycle Tour as they passed right by the site. To add to the occasion, students took it in turns to participate in a 100 mile sponsored cycle challenge using static bikes in order to raise money for ‘Caring Cancer Trust – Helping Kids with Cancer’.
With the help of local businesses, over £320 has been raised so far for the charity and we are extremely grateful for everyone’s support. We are grateful for the support of members of Wantage & District Chamber of Commerce, and especially Apex Security Systems, Motorlux Wantage, Two Barrows Gardening and Landscaping Service, Chapman Worth Chartered Accountants, The Wantage Pilates Studio and MacDermid Enthone.
We would also like to heartily thank the team at Engine House Gym in Ardington for the loan of two of their static bikes to enable the challenge to take place.
