Coast 2 Coast challenge

If you have some keen cyclists among your supporters, then challenge them to take part in a 215-mile coast to coast bike ride across the Trans Pennine Trail!

'The Coast 2 Coast Challenge was very successful and was supported by many parents, teachers, families and local businesses in our community. Leading up to the event the children at the school made posters and bunting for the grand depart! The route from Southport to Hornsea involved stopping off at the school on the first morning, where the nine dads cycled into the playground for all the children and teachers to give them a very special send off. They had a support van, which was used to transport important items like water and was used for advertising the local businesses who were sponsoring the event. The school were heavily involved in supporting the challenge – they brought in bikes and teachers took it in turns on the bike to match the miles on the first day. This also gave the school an opportunity to promote healthy eating, and our school dinner caterers also joined in with a smoothie-making bike, which involved the children making smoothies, which they absolutely loved! The team of dads who have worked extremely hard in supporting the PTFA by completing this Coast 2 Coast challenge, raised over £4,000 pounds which is just amazing. The whole community welcomed the boys back – it was a very special and proud moment for everyone involved.'
