Clevedon Learning Trust

Rowing for Charity

Big hearted Clevedon Learning Trust students break the million mark for charity.

INSPIRATIONAL Clevedon School students, parents and teachers rowed a staggering million metres over 24 hours for charity at the weekend.

Some 15 students showed incredible stamina, character, team work and leadership at the Clevedon Pier charity event.

The wonderful students came up with the plan to help out charities including Amnesty International, the Fire Fighters  Charity, JDRF and the Ripple Pond.

The latter being the three chosen charities of Team Atlantic Fortitude who are entering the Whisky Tallisker Challenge in 2018 and who were the inspiration for the whole event.  

Head of School Jim Smith said: "Wow - the students were absolutely amazing and a million metres in 24 hours is simply staggering! 

"We were also overwhelmed with the support and encouragement from friends, family, parents of students from Clevedon School, our lovely colleagues, current and ex students of the local community. Well done everyone."

The students worked alongside the Clevedon Pilot Gig Club and the Clevedon Pier and Heritage Trust to plan the event for months.
