Cycle ride for sports hall fundraising
Four men will be taking on a 180-mile journey to raise money for Westhaven School’s sports hall appeal.
Father-of-two Jason Stitch, his brother Matthew and friends Kevin Taylor and Matthew Pow will cycle from Land’s End to the school in two days to raise money.
Jason’s two children, Hayden and Luke, both attend Westhaven.
He said: “I am so impressed with the commitment of staff towards the children, that we wanted to show our gratitude through this fundraising venture.
“The teachers really do care about our kids, and they deserve what they want to get.
“All the staff go above and beyond to help our children, and hopefully this will go some way to show them our appreciation.”
The two Matthews are both managers at different Tesco stores, and the company is sponsoring the ride.
Jason said: “Over the next few weeks we will be fundraising at a few of the Tesco shops, in particular Weston, Burnham and Nailsea, as Matthew Stitch is a senior manager of the Burnham store and Matthew Pow is a senior manager at Nailsea.
“We will have buckets on the checkouts, and a few children at the front of the store.
“I have just had to go and buy a bike. It will be a huge physical challenge for the four of us, as none of us are particularly fit, but we will do our very best to raise as much as we can.
“We are training for it, and we have done about 30 miles so far.”
The men will take part in the ride on May 16-17. If you would like to sponsor them you can do that via our donation page. When donating please put “Bike ride” in the comment section so we can track contributions towards the cycle ride.
