Team story

[p]This September we will be taking on our biggest physical challenge ever. We will be cycling from Monaco to Tignes over five days. Every day we will cover at least 110km in distance whilst climbing 3000m in altitude (that's about 40 Hunton Hills per day ...)[/p][p]We will be cycling up (and down) many alpine passes made famous by the Tour de France, including Izoard, Galibier, Vars and Iseran. Pass the pasta please.[/p][p]This event aims to raise a total of £1million for the charity Big Change which supports vulnerable and underprivileged children in the UK: 'it's easier to build stronger children than it is to fix broken adults.'[/p][p]An important part of their current work is tackling the issue of pupil exclusions from school. Here are a couple of stats for you: there has been a 30% increase in exclusions in the past three years; one in every 2 prisoners were excluded from school and children born into poverty are 4 x more likely to be excluded. By training teachers to deal with severe behavioural issues and supporting pupil mental health, child exclusions from school can be drastically reduced.[/p][p]Requests for charitable donations are a constant in today's world so we are grateful for [i]any[/i] donation you are able to make. (We are funding our part in the event so every penny of your sponsorship will be given directly to Big Change).[/p]

Dear Lovely Friends Late, but better than never. Besides, I wanted to make sure you completed the challenge before payment. With Jonny's track record of **** related injuries, some cycling based, I felt one couldn't be too careful! Well done to you both!
