Thorpe boys cycle 301 miles for charity!

During their annual Charities Week, the boys of Thorpe House School collectively cycled 301 miles on static exercise bikes. All the Seniors at the school from year 7 to 11 took part - a total of 140 boys in total - and raised over £1500 in sponsorship money.

The money will go to the charities Stickler Syndrome, Cancer Research and Friends of Arciana, a charity helping the street children in Kabal.

Teacher Jan Macmillian who is responsible for the week's events said:

'In previous Charity Weeks we have swum the English Channel in our school pool, rowed the Thames on static rowing machines, so this year as our charity representative Eliot Stevens is a keen cyclist, a cycle challenge seemed like the obvious choice. It was an incredibly sweaty day in the gym, but the boys had a fantastic time!'
