Fantastic fundraiser for Development Trust!

The Year Two pupils at King’s St Alban’s have been enjoying the opportunity to keep active during lockdown. Some have become more confident with their cycling skills and others have enjoyed the chance to go walking with their family.

At the start of half term, the children decided to put their love of keeping active to use by taking part in the 2.6 challenge. This challenge was created to help charities continue to fundraise despite events like the London Marathon being postponed. Participants need to involve the numbers 2.6 or 26. So it could be skipping 26 times or walking 2.6 miles. Collectively, they decided to raise money for the King’s School Development Trust and agreed that to complete the activity they had to do an activity three times during the week.

The children enjoyed half term working towards their individual challenges. Some children chose to complete the challenge on their bikes and a couple on horseback! Lots of families enjoyed the opportunity to complete the challenge by walking, including walks on the Malverns. We are so proud of the initiative that they have shown and their determination to complete this fantastic challenge.

They raised £120 in total for the King’s School Development Trust. At the moment, the primary focus of the Development Trust is King’s School Bursaries. Thank you so much to all involved for helping Open the Door to King’s to more children!
