Bristol Headmistress leads team to complete 367-mile cycle across the UK for The Springboard Bursary FoundationPosted on: 22 Aug 2017
A team of cyclists, led by Badminton School Headmistress Rebecca Tear, recently participated in a week-long 367-mile charity cycle in order to raise money for The Springboard Bursary Foundation.
The Springboard Bursary Foundation is a charity that helps to transform the lives of disadvantaged children through full bursaries at state and independent boarding schools across the UK.
Mrs Tear and the team travelled the width of the country, visiting nine different boarding schools spread from East to West, all of which provide places to children funded by the foundation.
Despite the long distance and the challenging weather conditions, the team of cyclists completed their 367-mile charity cycle on Saturday, arriving at Mount Kelly School in Devon. The team have raised a significant amount of money for The Springboard Bursary Foundation so far, a figure that they look to increase in the forthcoming weeks.
Mrs Tear, Headmistress at Badminton School, commented: “I am very proud to be supporting such a great cause. It was fantastic to visit some of the schools that provide places to children funded by the foundation along the way. Thank you all for your kind donations and support”.
