The Le Rocquier School Cycle Team consists of 10 students, aged 14 and 15 yrs, and 2 teachers, all of whom are determined to make a difference to the lives of Stroke Survivors in Jersey. Our aim is to cycle the 330 miles from Paris to Jersey in just 4 days in September 2014 and to raise the amazing total of £21,000 at the same time.! This will be an incredible personal challenge for the students, all of whom were selected after being interviewed in December and who have been regularly training before school 3 days each week since the start of the year.
Our team will need the help of many people, families, friends and work connections alike, to reach our total, but they have already displayed amazing commitment and have planned lots of activities and events to help raise the funds and succeed in their goal! We will keep you updated with progress but can I thank you in advance for any donation you give, it really will make a difference to many!
Le Rocquier School Cycle Challenge Team are raising funds for the Stroke Association. Would you like to Sponsor us?
The students are getting stronger, faster and are learning the required mentality for distance cycling. This progress will continue as we continue our training and preparation regime.
Its also been a great couple of weeks of fundraising for our Paris to Jersey Cycle Challenge. Our total is steadily rising. This last fortnight we have had:
£105 from the car boot sale
£600 from a pub quiz
£200 from the two hour Zumba class organised by Sue and a lovely contribution from the Samares School non-uniform day after being inspired by the words of Toby and Jack.
Thank you all for your continued support.
