Year 4 Students Awarded Medals and Junior Ride and Stride Cup

It was a weekend of celebration for Mimi, Annabelle, and their cousin Rosie from Year 4 at St. Gabriel's, as they were honored with medals and the prestigious Junior Ride and Stride cup.

The trio's remarkable achievement took place during the Junior Ride and Stride event, an initiative aimed at raising funds for the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust and their local church. The event, which occurred in September last year, saw participants tasked with visiting as many churches as possible, whether on foot, horseback, or bicycle, all while raising money for a worthy cause.

Mimi, Annabelle, and Rosie formed part of a vibrant group that embarked on a cycling journey from Shalbourne Church to Ham Church and onward to Inkpen Church before returning. Their dedication and enthusiasm paid off, as they collectively raised over £700, a testament to their commitment to supporting their community and preserving historic landmarks.

Their outstanding fundraising efforts did not go unnoticed, as they were awarded the Ride and Stride cup for the second consecutive year. The girls' dedication, perseverance, and charitable spirit have not only made them champions but also role models within the school community.
