Budehaven Biking for Breast Cancer Awareness

Just before half term, Budehaven staff, Mr Dyer and Mr Drew, led a group of Year 13 Btec Outdoor Pursuits students on a two day cycle from Saunton Sands in North Devon to Plymouth Hoe on the other coast.

The idea was to raise money and awareness of the Coppafeel Breast Cancer in Young People Charity .

The Devon Coast to Coast challenge took two days with the group staying at The Youth Hostel in Okehampton overnight. The trip was quite tough with the cyclists completing nearly 100 miles in total.

Special thanks go to Congdons Furniture Store in Bude, who donated the use of their removal van to transport the bikes to the start and finish. Without this help it would have made the event very difficult to organise. The school also offered  special thanks to Mrs Lesley Blake-Bertram at  Sainsburys, Bude, who managed to fit the group in at short notice to collect nearly £600 for the charity.

Mr Dyer hopes to make this an annual event in the future.
