Charity efforts boosted by fourth year pupils’ bike ride

4K charity cyclists

A sponsored bike ride and a collection for a toy appeal by the members of form 4K raised over £750 for charity last month, adding to the impressive sums raised by other initiatives throughout the school during the autumn term.

The boys in 4K chose to raise money for the Diabetes UK from their sponsored bike ride, undertaken by Sam Haley and Simon Howard who cycled a combined 160 miles from Kettleshulme to school and back over four days.

They have so far raised an incredible £700 and are still collecting some of the pledged money, with their efforts underpinned by Will Jones’s talk to the form about diabetes to raise awareness of the disease.

The girls chose to support Big Storage’s Christmas toy appeal, and raised £50 which they used to buy a selection of presents to be distributed to needy children in Stockport on Christmas day.

Other charity appeals towards the end of term also saw Strictly Come Sixth Form raise over £700 for EduCaid and Christie Hospital; nearly £500 raised for Children in Need; over £150 raised by carol singers at Marks and Spencer; and the Salvation Army benefit from the Junior School’s Christmas toy appeal, the Stopfordian Parents’ Association Christmas fair and a second year coat appeal.
