The Wellesley Lockdown Escape

Why we need your help

On 10th and 11th September 2020, we have set ourselves the challenge of cycling the South Downs Way, a trail that runs for 100 miles from Winchester in Hampshire to Eastbourne in East Sussex, with 3,800 metres or 12,600ft of ascent.

For 2020, we wanted to choose a challenge that would not only push us as individuals but also support a local cause, as part of our work with the Wellesley Charitable Foundation. The Foundation aims to raise money for local organisations based in Sussex and the surrounding area that help ill or disadvantaged children. Over the years we have made a huge difference to many lives and this year we are proud to be raising funds for Farney Close School, an independent residential special school supporting girls and boys aged 9-18 who are experiencing social, emotional and mental health difficulties.

This South Downs Way challenge is new to us all and something we want to achieve by working together as a close-knit team – in-keeping with our Wellesley ethos.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, many charities are struggling with funding and donations, which is why doing this ride is so important to us. Farney Close School is planning to extend their education experience by building a new base for Year 5 and 6.

Your donations will go directly to the school to support this project.

Thank you for your support for this worthwhile cause.


Ian, Richard R, Steve, Harry C, George, Luke and Ben B.
