Running Challenge for Red Nose Day 2021

This week we have been getting into the spirit for Red Nose Day with our very own Billy's Big Challenge. Here is some information about the challenge.

In February 2021, professional racing driver and double-leg amputee, Billy Monger, undertook a grueling triathlon inspired challenge, in support of Red Nose Day. Over the course of four days he battled the elements, as well as physical and mental exhaustion, as he set out to walk, kayak and cycle a staggering 140 miles. Along the way, he was supported by family, friends and some very special guests to help spur him on to the finish line.

Across both sites the challenge was to match Billy's 140 miles. The children have been amazing at running everyday in rain or shine.  

Here are some photos of the children participating in the challenge.
