Moulton sisters' cycling fundraiser
Two sisters have come up with a bespoke way to raise money for their school.
Kacey (9) and younger sister Holly (6) Clayton are taking on cycling challenges in July with John Harrox Primary School in Moulton.
They will be following in the footsteps of Charlie Edgeley and his pony Olaf, who have raised hundreds of pounds to support the school’s Friends of the School Association by completing a 10 mile trek earlier this year.
Kacey will be undertaking a 50 mile challenge over the next month while her younger sister Holly will be completing a 25 miles.
Joining the girls on this challenge is proud mum Hayley Clayton (40), of Moulton Seas End.
She said: “Kacey was keen to raise the money for the school and Holly wanted to join in.
“I am really proud of them for taking this on.”
Normally, the Friends of the School group is able to raise around £8,000 a year to buy equipment for the Broad Lane school but their fundraising efforts have been halted by the pandemic.
The Friends of the School have bought new iPads for youngsters and outdoor play equipment as a result of their usual fundraising activities.
Members were hoping to help buy additional books and other improvements for the school’s library.
Kacey and her mum Hayley are planning to undertake a number of weekend rides covering a four mile route.
While Holly will be taking on the shorter two and a half mile routes during the challenge.
Sponsorship can be paid in via the Friends of the School’s paypal account.
