BACA Smashes Sport Relief Target!

BACA Smashes Sport Relief Target!

Students and teachers rallied together to raise over £250 for Sport Relief in just one day.  BACA’s PE faculty organised an all day row and cycle with the aim of rowing the length of the River Thames and cycling a leg of the Tour de France.

Students diligently rowed or cycled in stints of 20 minutes and paid £1.50 to do so.  Using Sport Relief’s donation page a further £95 was raised from staff donations and people in the wider community.  This was a brilliant event that generated a lot of excitement and interest, in which everyone could participate.

The Brighton Argus covered the efforts that BACA had made in order to raise such a large amount of money in such a short time.  Read more about the article here that includes information on events that other schools in the area did to raise money for the charity.
