Scott's November Go Fund Me Challenge!!
One of our Dad's at C of E, who's had children here at the school for 8 years has set himself a huge physical challenge this November to raise funds for the school!! Scott Claydon, who works for Microsoft, has set himself the task of completing a 5km run each day in November as well as swimming a 5km (200 length of a 25m pool)!!! What a champ!!!
Not only is he hoping to raise £500 sponsorship by completing this mammoth task, but if he hits his £500 target, Microsoft will match the amount!!! This will really benefit the children at a time where school funding is really struggling due to lack of self-generated income, e.g. hall lets, and also not being able to hold any of our big fundraising events this Autumn term.
Lets get behind Scott and show him our support by sponsoring him whatever we can through the following link and help motivate him as he prepares for his challenge!!
Keep your eyes peeled for his progress!!

So if you haven't already, please do get behind Scott in this tough challenge and pledge some sponsorship please.
UPDATE 1 - Monday 26th October 10am
Scott has not only completed his first training run this morning but he has totally smashed his fundraising target of £500 in just 2 days of setting it up!!! This is awesome news and so the target has been raised to a huge £1000!!
Let's all get behind Scott not only by sponsoring him and helping him meet this new target but also be sure to give him some support if we see him out training!! A big cheer or a peep!!
UPDATE 3 - Saturday 31st October
Due to Boris Johnson's National Lockdown announcement the challenge has had to be amended slightly. The impending closure of leisure centres has meant Scott will now have to replace the swim with a 5km cycle. Scott will now run 5km each day followed by a 5km cycle every day of November!!
