Student’s Citizenship to raise team profile
Fraser Denny and Glenn Hibbert are both studying for their GCSEs and for part of their coursework in “Citizenship” had to choose a project that would improve the awareness of a chosen organisation. During a visit to the Peak District last year they saw BMRT in action and decided that this would be the group they wanted to concentrate on.
Part of the coursework involves researching the organisation and then preparing a presentation to their peers. Another aspect is to try to raise money for the charity and the lads embarked on planning a sponsored cycle ride through the Peak District.
On a wet and cold Monday in November they set off from Tissington to cover 55 miles of the Tissington and High Peak Trails and even extended their route to take in Carsington Water. It was a successful day resulting in very muddy bikes and riders.
The two now have to prepare their presentations and collect in their sponsorship money. The team extends a great “Thank You” to the two young men for their support and wishes them success when the examination results are out.
