Cyclists’ 106 miles generates funds

AN INTREPID group of cyclists set out from St Lawrence School, Napton, for a 106-mile fundraising ride.

The team set off at 8.30am on Saturday, September 15 along the towpaths to Birmingham and back to raise funds for the school.

With an overnight stay in Castle Bromwich they returned triumphantly, if a little painfully, at 3.45pm the following day to a welcoming committee of children, some of whom had made their own banner, and cakes.

Sponsorship to date has raised in excess of £2,500 but the school’s association is hoping to top £3,000 which will fund a number of interactive whiteboards and 60 computers to be used across the school.
