Villiers Park Educational Trust
Villiers Park Educational Trust helps able young people to reach their full academic potential and develop a passion for learning. We are committed to fair access -- enabling students from less advantaged backgrounds to gain places at leading universities. We have established the Mike Baker Memorial Fund, in honour of our former trustee. All funds raised will be used to help less advantaged young people participate in our educational activities.

The (MIKE) BAKER'S BIKERS are doing a special bike ride to remember Mike by riding from The Parlour at Clayhidon to his favourite beach, Putsborough, on the North Devon coast. 

The date: September 7th & 8th

The hills are going to be steep and the going tough so please sponsor us to raise money for Villiers Park Educational Trust - the more we raise the 'flatter' it will get!!

Villiers Park is doing a fantastic job helping 14-18 year old disadvantaged bright students to reach their potential and go to a university of their choice. The charity runs challenging and fun residential courses covering all subjects. Our specific memorial trust for Mike is funding a journalism course. 

The Trust does so much more than this to address social mobility, so please please have a look at their website:

Following in the Baker tradition, we have a joke:
Why was the bike not able to stand up? Because he was two tyred! Boom. Boom. 

Thank you in advance for your donations!
