We are aware that many of our students have been using the last couple of months as an opportunity to keep up their fitness levels while supporting worthwhile causes. For instance, youngsters in Grindleford came up with the idea of running the distance from John O'Groats to Lands' End (that's 1407km) in a week to raise money for Matlock Food Bank and Eyam Pump Track Club. They completed their challenge with great determination and even featured on Chris Evan's breakfast show. Inspired by their success, their neighbours in Eyam then took up the baton (or the yellow jersey) and put on their own event. They chose to cycle the distance of the Tour de France (3470km) in just ten days to raise funds for Derbyshire's Blend Youth Project and Eyam Pump Track Club. Over 40 cyclists from Eyam and surrounding areas took part, some of them as young as four years old. Several Lady Manners School students joined in, cycling the full distance of the Tour de France a full day before the ten day deadline. They even added a few extra kilometres, to bring them all the way from Paris back to Eyam! Well done to all who organised, supported and participated in these local events, including Lady Manners School students, Daniel, Grace and Stefan who showed willingness, strength and determination throughout the event. They have raised over £3000 between the two events.
