A very successful Ride Challenge held at Basildon Sporting `Village yesterday.
Thanks to Management and staff at Everyone Active for helping with the preparation an organisation of the day.
136 Km on a bike and 50km on a rowing machine by 20 students from both Woodlands School and Beauchamps School to raise awareness for the ride. The press release carried the Just Giving and CROWDFUNDER information in case any of the public would like to add to the venture.
Stephen Metcalfe MP attended to chat to teachers and the students. He even maned one stage of the challenge on the bike.
After the challenge was over – having taken four hours of hard physical work (and positively competitive) to travel the distance from Kent University to The Menin Gate, Beauchamps won the challenge just by 3 minutes. It was close all through the afternoon. Our thanks to all those competing.
