Challenge complete!

Kingspark 185

Fundraising cycle challenge of 185 miles in one day

One of our teachers, Anthony Revell will be undertaking a 185 mile cycle to raise funds for the development of the Kingspark Outdoor Learning Yurt.

Anthony will cycle one mile per pupil currently attending Kingspark.

This means he will cycle 185 miles in one day. 

The aim is to raise a minimum of £10 per mile/young person.  The Kingspark Parent Staff Association is supporting Anthony in raising this money and would be most grateful if you could help him reach his goal by sponsoring him.   

His challenge is longer than any stage of this years Tour de France or the equivalent of cycling from Dundee to Newcastle!
