Sponsored Cycle to Tanzania

Sponsored Cycle to Tanzania

To raise money for the 2016 Vine Trust trip to Tanzania, our senior pupils and staff have been participating in a 'Sponsored Cycle to Tanzania' and are trying to cover a total distance of 5000 kilometres on spin bikes that have been loaned to the school by Xcite Leisure Centre.

This sponsored cycle, not only shows the commitment of the school to this worthwhile charity, but also highlighted the dedication of 37 pupils from S6 and 25 members of staff, who are keen to get active and keep fit!

The sponsored cycle, will also continue during the Midnight Marathon, being held on Thursday 15th October, when the pupils and staff hope to have lots of fun cycling the last few hundred miles.   Over the first week of the cycle, we have already totalled over 600 kilometres.   Six pupils from S5/S6 will be participating in an educational visit to Tanzania in June, the money raised will help them supply materials for the building of homes for orphaned children.

More Information about the Vine Trust can be found on their website.

Any Donations towards this event would be greatly appreciated.
