CCGS raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

10th June 2015

Two teachers from Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School are preparing to take to the saddle for a gruelling 24 hour Cycle Challenge to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Deputy Headteacher Clark Goodwin and Head of Sport & PE Tom Richford will set out on Thursday 25th June with the aim of trying to cycle as far as possible during the given time period.

With a target distance in excess of 200 miles the duo are under no illusion as to how tough it will be. Speaking of the challenge Mr Richford said ‘it will be tough but enjoyable. Make-A-Wish is a fantastic charity and we are looking forward to hopefully raising a substantial amount for them’. The duo are no strangers to feats of endurance having completed an 83 mile sponsored ride from Great Ormond Street Hospital to Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School last year which raised over £3000 for the childrens hospital.

The event is part of a series, including a non-uniform day, guess the distance and cake sale, that span the week at the school all with the charity that grants wishes for children with life threatening illnesses in mind.

Apart from the generosity of the students, staff, parents, family and friends; the school would like to thank all the contributions made by local business Ambition Sport who have kindly provided kit for the day and donated prizes for in-school event
