Riding for Resources Update
Pictured are, Mr David Middleton, Governor of Selby High School and Mechanical Director of John Wright, Electrical and Mechanical Services, York & Mrs Caroline Young, Deputy Assistant Principal and SENDL with the seven new laptops that were purchased as a result of David’s money raising efforts.
On Saturday 1st May David successfully took part in the Maserati Tour de Yorkshire Ride. The sportive route, starting and finishing in Scarborough, followed parts of Stage 3 of the 2016 Tour de Yorkshire. There were three distances for riders to choose from: 40km, 85km and 115km. David completed the 115km route. A highlight of this amazing event was the 1km sea front sprint finish, crossing the very same line as the pro riders.
He raised an amazing £1,410 for students who face weekly and daily challenges at Selby High School, as a result of either physical or learning needs. The seven laptops, twice as many as the number he was aiming to purchase, will be available for use by students who receive some of their education in the Student Support Centre. Mr Eckersley praised Mr Middleton for his great achievement and David is now busy preparing for his next money raising feat in 2017!
