Lower School Pupils Conquer Rutland Water for Charity

10th June 2024

Nearly two hundred Lower School pupils, parents, and staff took part in a charity walk and bike ride at Rutland Water, raising money for LOROS Hospice.

Setting off from Whitwell, the cyclists covered the 37-kilometre circuit of Rutland Water, whilst the walkers completed a 10km return trip to Normanton Church. Around forty canine friends joined the walkers, making it a truly family friendly event.

Lionel the LOROS mascot made an appearance at the start of the event, providing additional motivation for the cyclists and walkers. Despite the damp and misty start, everyone set off in good spirits and their efforts were rewarded by brilliant sunshine halfway through the morning.

Stacy Munday, Supporter Engagement Coordinator for LOROS, said: “It is lovely to see so many students taking part and raising vital funds for a local charity.

“The money raised will help to fund the LOROS Hospice. It’s an amazing place where we not only look after patients to make the end of their life as exciting and as pleasurable as possible, but we look after their family and friends as well.”

David Williams, Housemaster of Sargants, said: “I would like to thank all the Lower School pupils and their families for supporting our charity event.

“It has been great to see so many parents and family pets accompanying the children. So far, we have raised nearly £4,500. With three weeks to go until the end of term, we hope we can raise even more money to support this worthwhile cause.”
