Riley and mason hit the road for julian house

Year 7 students, Riley Brooks-Porter and Mason Carter, recently undertook a sponsored bike ride to raise money for the College’s chosen charity for the academic year, Julian House. 

Cycling 12 miles and finishing their journey up in Bovey Tracey, the fundraising duo managed to raise an impressive £221 for the charity, whose goal is to offer direct support to those who find themselves socially excluded and, as a result, offer training and help them to find gainful employment.

Riley was pleased with his efforts, commenting: “Mason and I are good friends, so we wanted to do something together. The ride was really good fun and was the longest I have cycled. We were sponsored by our friends and family who helped raise a brilliant amount for Julian House. We organised the ride because we wanted to help out the community and help other people. It feels amazing to know that something we did will help others. 

Assistant Principal and fundraising lead, Katherine West, said of the achievement: “I am thrilled, every year, with our students’ commitment to fundraising activities and their motivation to help others in our local community and beyond. Riley and Mason have only recently joined our College, so to have such motivated young people helping us achieve our goal is simply fantastic. We are proud, as a College, to shine a spotlight on charitable fundraising and to try to help make a difference in people’s lives.”
