Team ‘persue’ charity goal with pedal power
A group of Perse School staff will be cycling from Land’s End to the Perse Upper on Hills Road– a journey of 400 miles – to mark the School’s 400th anniversary and raise money for charity.
The group of keen cyclists, dubbed ‘The Persuers’ have been training hard for their tour de force later this month. They will be supported by four support vehicle drivers, also from the School.
Head of Maths Greg Davies said: “We thought that cycling 400 miles for charity was a great way to celebrate our 400th anniversary. We plan to do the distance as a relay with small teams of riders taking turns on the road. We will need to average 16.7mph to complete the journey in 24 hours which will be challenging”.
Money raised from the effort will go to the School’s anniversary charities: East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice, Christel House and the School’s fund for pupil bursaries. To find out how you can support the team click here.
