Congratulations and thank you to George, Ben, Arthur and James for their efforts at Bike Oxford!

The four children from Bladon Primary School took part in the 25-mile ride in aid of the charity, as part of their schools’ efforts to raise money for Oxfordshire Youth.

The 25-mile ride included some big hills but the team of year 3-6 students were fantastic.
They were supported by teachers, Mr Daw, and PE teacher (and our own triathlete and ambassador) Matt Gregor!

“The boys decided they wanted to do something off their own backs to fundraise for our charity. As part of our commitment to supporting our children’s mental health and resilience we are fundraising for Oxfordshire Youth, to support the work they do with our staff/children but also to help share the great work they do for young people and youth organisations throughout our county.

We will be running a number of fundraisers in the coming months and it was great to see the boys getting engaged and actively finding ways to support.

Our next event is a Blaze Fitness Class which we’re running for parents, followed by a school fun run in Blenheim Palace towards the end of our term.” Matt said
