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.
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.”
