Supporting Calderstones Tower 2 Tower 2014
Last November, Calderstones Community Comprehensive School in South Liverpool sadly lost one of its most popular and revered teachers, Mr Phil Gibbons. This mobilised the whole school community to channel it’s efforts on supporting charity organisations with a mental health focus.
Assistant Headteacher and PE teacher, Allan Preston, decided to organise a Tower2Tower bicycle challenge from Liverpool’s Radio City Tower to Paris’s Eiffel Tower, and challenged fellow members of staff, governors and ex-pupils to join him. Sixteen drawn from the school community have accepted the challenge to undertake 500 gruelling miles in just five days in July 2014.
The team will be be raising money for Liverpool-based mental health charity, Imagine Independence and MerseySTEM are more than proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the riders.
The cyclists are looking for support from local companies and the public. Donations can be made here: http://www.justgiving.com/T2T2014.
An arduous challenge but for an amazing cause…
We’ll keep you posted on how they go, GOOD LUCK GUYS!
