Cycle for charity

Public Service learners at Stoke on Trent College raised money for the Help for Heroes charity, after playing their part in a national, county-by-county relay bike ride.

Sixteen students picked up the baton from Wolverhampton College, before taking the ride out of Staffordshire, through Cheshire and on to Trafford College in Manchester.

Money raised by the cycle ride will be donated to the charity, which is dedicated to helping wounded servicemen and women.

Sixteen students in total, made up of fifteen boys and one girl, took part in the event, which saw them gather their own sponsorship support voluntarily.

Rebekah Bradley, 18, from Northwood was the only girl from Stoke on Trent College taking part in the cycle ride. She said: “We did this for a really good charity and it was a lot of fun.”

Patrick Cork, 17, from Stoke, was also involved with the event. He said: “I didn’t actually cycle with the group but drove alongside, encouraging them and collecting money as they went through the towns.

“It was a great experience and in support of a really good cause.”
