Students to cycle for Prostate Cancer UK
The Academy are taking part in a charity fundraising cycling event to help raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, one of the charities the Academy has chosen to support this year. The students will try to cycle as many laps as they can around Rockingham Motor Speedway Oval track in the space of two hours.
The event will take place on Wednesday 7th March and staff and students taking part will need to gain sponsorship for their participation.
Prizes will be awarded for the most laps cycled within the two hours, the most money raised and the fastest lap.
The aim of the event is to show support to two of our staff member’s, Mr Clive Wears and Ms Rachel Johnson, who are taking part in the Grand Depart to raise money for the charity.
Both events are linked to our ‘Ambition For All’ month which we will take place in March. The campaign aims to reinforce our Trust values by improving academic outcomes and opportunities for character development.
Principal Ms Janina Taylor said ‘We have organised lots of events for March to show how ambitious we are as an Academy. Rachel and Clive have put them self forward to represent the Academy by taking part in the Grand Depart to help raise money for Prostate Cancer UK. I wanted to get the students support behind them and be ambitious to see if we can achieve a similar amount of miles to what Clive and Rachel will need to achieve. I also hope to show the students that what may seem impossible can be achieved and encourage them to be #notafraidtofly.’
