Peddling for Charity

December 2019

On Friday Ian Ramsey came together and succeeded in cycling 146 miles, over 12 hours to raise money for CLIC Sargent, a children’s cancer charity.

Through out the day members of staff took time out to cycle, whether they had on trainers, shoes or work boots, they all did their bit to chip away at the 146 miles. There wasn’t a time in the 12 hours that there wasn’t somebody sat on the bike peddling away.

The last mile was peddled during the Christmas Fayre by a Year 11 student, with a golden confetti canon being released by Mrs Proudman to mark the end of the ride.

Other stalls at the Christmas Fayre were also raising money for CLIC Sargent, with Mrs Feathersone’s sweetbola and bottlebola stall raising over £250. People were also donating via a just giving page, and in collection buckets throughout the day and evening. We’re hoping to have raised well over £1000, but we won’t know until CLIC Sargent have counted up all the donations

CLIC Sargent wasn’t the only charity that Ian Ramsey pupils were raising money for; one group were raising money for Dementia UK, and another for Liv’s Trust, a local charity helping young people in the Creative Arts.

We are very proud of our young people and staff who all gave up their time to help others.

We actually raised £1478!
