Students take on bike battle

Have your say

STUDENTS at a South Yorkshire college went the distance when they completed a charity bike ride for the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust’s Dr Ted Children’s Appeal.

Sports coaching students from Dearne Valley College raised £100 when they went head to head with public services students to see who could cycle the furthest distance as part of the Tour De Dearne Challenge.

The groups from the Wath-based college took it in turns to use exercise bikes to monitor how far they cycled.

The students were split into groups with different responsibilities to make the day happen. Tasks ranged from organising sponsorship to securing media coverage.

The Dr Ted Children’s Appeal, part of Rotherham Hospital Charity, aims to raise funds to further improve the experience of children and families at the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust by providing fun and learning accessories.
