Students at St Aidan’s CE High School swapped bikes for space hoppers and raised £1,500 for charity in a very unique ‘Tour de France’ challenge.
To celebrate the world’s biggest annual sporting event coming to Yorkshire, two teachers from the school’s art department created a huge impression of a bike on the playing fields, and the children bounced around the course for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
Andy Pierce, Events Manager at the charity, said: We’d like to thank all the students and staff involved for getting into the spirit of the Grand Départ with a brilliant, creative fundraiser! The excitement of the Tour de France coming to Yorkshire has inspired lots of generous Yorkshire people to raise money for us, and all the money raised will play a huge role in helping us improve cancer outcomes across the county.
