Toby's Amazing Charity Bike Ride! 

Congratulation to Toby in Y2 who decided he would like to do a bike ride to raise money for BBC Children in Need. Toby’s bike ride was delayed a week due to the snow, however he completed the 10 miles last Sunday. He did a great job and finished very wet from all the puddles but was very happy. 
We are astounded by everyone's generosity, including fellow school parents. At time or writing he raised £1200 for Children in Need.  Thank you!
