Edenhurst staff take on epic LEJOG cycle ride for charity

Posted on: 15 May 2019

Teachers from Edenhurst Prep School are putting their best wheel forward to raise money for charity by cycling from Lands’ End to John O’ Groats.

Headteacher Mike Hibbert, and Dave Barber, Director of Studies, will cycle 912.9 miles and 46,929 vertical feet to raise money for local charity Our Space and the school’s Edenhurst Parent and Teacher Association (EPTA).

They will depart from Land’s End on 14th July and aim to complete the challenge in just 10 days, raising more than £10,000 for their chosen causes.

Organiser Dave Barber, said: “I’m an enthusiastic cyclist and have always wanted to do LEJOG. I have somehow managed to talk Mike into taking part too, to raise money for the School and our nominated charity, Our Space.”

Our Space is a local charity that provides unique social and recreational opportunities for children and adults with disabilities from its specialist facility, The Brook Centre, in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

The school will donate half the funds raised to Our Space and the other half will be donated to the Edenhurst Parent and Teacher Association (EPTA) who are raising money towards resurfacing the School’s playground.

Edenhurst Preparatory School is part of Bellevue Education. In a bid to ensure as much money goes to charity as possible, Bellevue Education will be supporting the duo by covering the cost of accommodation along the route.

The target of £10,000 is ambitious and the Edenhurst team are very grateful for the support they have already received from parents at the school, colleagues, and friends and family.

Dave said: “We would like to thank all our many sponsors so far for their fantastic support and generosity.”

Any organisations who wish to sponsor the team should contact Dave Barber via email to david.barber@edenhurst.co.uk

Donations can also be made via the team’s Just Giving site. Updates of the team’s fundraising, training and ride progress can be found on Twitter using the hashtag #EPSLeJog19
