On Sunday the 10th May, the Maths Department and their families met on a lovely sunny day at Hoylake Railway Station to start their sponsored walk for Cyclists Fighting Cancer.
A 10km circular course had been plotted to include parts of the Wirral Way, around West Kirby Marina and along the coastline past Hilbre Island – the route was stunning. We even made time to get an ice-cream (refreshments) on the front!!
The walk was to raise money for Cyclists Fighting Cancer. This charity provides bikes, tandems and specially adapted trikes to children and young people who are affected by cancer in the UK. Exercise has been shown to be the single most effective way of improving both physical and mental well-being for people surviving cancer.
We were motivated to raise money for this cause as a colleague’s son had received a bike from this charity and we all felt it was a great cause.
As well as the walk Mr Hughes competed in the Chester Half Marathon and completed in a fabulous time of 1 hour 50 minutes, and Ms Ward (English Dept.) is to compete in the Wolverhampton Half Marathon in September both in aid of Cyclists Fighting Cancer. So there will be more added to this fabulous total.
The money raised so far for this amazing charity is £1301.
