Our boys raising money for charityMay 2nd, 2020
We are so proud to be able to report on three of our boys who, in the style of Captain Tom Moore, have been spending their time in lockdown raising money for charity – James in Year 5 (pictured left), Oliver in Year 4 and Monty in Year 3 (pictured below).
James had heard that fundraising for Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice had been affected by Covid-19, as social distancing restrictions meant that the events that would normally raise money for them, could no longer take place. With this in mind, James came up with the idea of holding a virtual bike ride, as he had been using an exercise bike to stay fit and thought it was a good way to raise money whilst in lockdown. On Saturday 2nd May he is going to do a virtual cycle of 46 miles, which is the distance from our house to Ty Hafan and should take around 5 hours, which he will take on in 90 minute stints throughout the day. His initial goal was to raise £150 for Ty Hafan, but so far he has managed to raise a whopping £645. Good luck with your ride, James!
Monty and Oliver both cycled 26 laps around their garden on Sunday. The boys’ late Uncle Johnnie had cerebral palsy and the boys chose two charities Scope and the Salvation Army who provided him with support. They raised £26 each from family donations.
