Last night, just before the KPS1000 team set off from Bath’s Royal United Hospital, our fund-raising reached its target of £10,000. This is a huge achievement. We’d all like to thank everyone who has played a part in helping us raise a truly transformational amount of money – those who sponsored us online and offline, those who bought raffle tickets, those who donated raffle prizes, the individuals and companies who helped make the fete such a huge success, those who organised the balloon release, the cycling evening at Castle Combe and anyone else who played a part.
This morning, Mark Brearey, the head teacher of Kingswood Prep School, will announce that we’ve reached the £10,000 target before 15 riders set off to play their part in riding to John O’Groats.
And by the way, in case you’re wondering why this is called We Made It Part 1, there should (!) be another blog post entitled We Made It Part 2 in a week’s time, always assuming we make it to John O’Groats.
