Mrs Pitcher’s Triple Challenge

This picture shows her taking part in the “Dartmoor Demon” cycling sportive earlier this month.

Mrs Caroline Pitcher, one of our Maths teachers, plans to cycle from John O’Groats to Gretna in September to raise money for three women’s cancer charities: Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.

The three elements of the challenge are raising £1000 for the charities, cycling almost 500 miles and giving up alcohol from January 1st to September 15th as part of the training (and to attract sponsorship).

To help with her fundraising, she is offering students (and staff) the opportunity to “gunge” her at the school Summer Fayre on July 14th.

Anybody wishing to take part simply has to donate or raise money for the three charities.  The student from each year group who raises the most wins the chance to pour the gunge.
