Team story

[p]Welcome to the donation page for the Oakhill College LE JOG Challenge 2015.[/p][p]Our group of staff and pupils have now completed the ultimate British cycling challenge of a journey from Lands End to John O' Groats this August.  The route was 951 miles long and was completed over two weeks of continuous pedalling!  We enjoyed an amazing adventure and all successfully completed the challenge in one piece, and with only 10 punctures.[/p][p]Pupils Jacob McHugh, Daniel Riding and William Singleton led the way, joined by Mr. Peel, Mr. Jepson and Mr. Kirkham, making a very diverse team aged between 14 and 68!  We were supported throughout our journey by Mr. Singleton's best tractor and trailer, which also successfully completed the journey without any problems, attracting far more attention than the cycling team.  Our team of excellent drivers took on the roads of Great Britain with ease and confidence, usually followed by a stream of cars honking in support.[/p][p]We are fundraising for our three school charities, CAFOD, Macmillan and Rainbows, and donations are still being accepted.  These charities were chosen this year by our own school pupils and together they serve a huge range of worthwhile causes, from cancer and bereavement support in our own and other local communities, to international aid for those in need elsewhere.[/p][p]We are very grateful for all the generosity and donations made to date and we are delighted to have well exceeded our target of £3000.  We would particularly like to thank the following people:[/p][p]Mr. and Mrs. Singleton for providing our fantastic support tractor and trailer, and coping with the logistics involved![/p][p]Mrs. Birchall and Birchall Catering Supplies for donating much appreciated food and supplies.[/p][p]Our excellent team of drivers, Phil, Cath, Tommy, Gerard, Leo, Kathryn and Rob, for giving up their time and taking the wheel of ‘Beryl’ on her and their own adventure.[/p][p]Mr. and Mrs. Baron for their ongoing support and a great celebration meal at the end.[/p][p]Mrs. Sutterby and family, and Mr. and Mrs. Inglis (Jacob’s Grandparents) for their fantastic support throughout and a much appreciated barbeque at Loch Lomond, and coffee and bacon butties on our last leg.[/p][p]Mrs. Rawlinson for her generosity, kindness and tolerance of 6 smelly cyclists.[/p][p]All our friends at Oakhill who turned out to meet us as we passed through school to give us a boost and plenty of cake to keep us going to the end.[/p][p]The people at the Severn Bridge for their special escort of ‘Beryl’.[/p][p]To all who supported us through their kind words and donations, and the countless friendly strangers we met along the way.[/p][p]Thanks very much to you all – we couldn’t have done it without you![/p][p]The LEJOG team 2015[/p]
