Spinning in the rain

Posted on May 30 2017 at 3:53:10


Parents and friends of St Andrew’s First School in Barnt Green braved the rain to take part in a 12-hour sponsored “spinathon”.

Using static bikes donated by local business KO FitCycle, the 140 participants – including headteacher Kay Cholmondeley (above, with organisers Ragan Mathews and Janette Day) – raised £1,820 on the day. With a further £1,700 in fund-matching, the money will be used for a communications app for the school.

Meanwhile, pupils enjoyed a session with Liam Blackwood of StressBox (left), which combines boxing and mindfulness to relieve stress.
