JOGLE 18 in aid of The Children’s Society and Mind

Exeter School staff, pupils, parent and friends are busy training for their second cycle ride in aid of two charities, The Children’s Society and Mind.

After the success of LEJOG 16, the team of 27 are undertaking the return journey, from John O’Groats to Land’s End, from 12 – 21 August.

The JOGLE 18 team consists of school staff: Rich Drew, Joe Lapenna, Dani Lunn, Sue Marks, Ali Marsh, Paul Sprake, Craig and Lisa Stewartalumna Amy Marks, former members of staff Richard and Alice Hawkins, along with parents and friends of the school.

Organiser and Estates and Facilities Manager Craig Stewart said:

“Our last epic bike ride in the opposite direction was one of the most brilliant things we have ever done.

“We met some great people on the way, whilst facing huge physical and mental challenges.

“It’s a big ask but hopefully we can exceed the £28,500 raised during LEJOG 16 and raise even more for two of Exeter School’s charities.

“Six HMC schools have generously offered to host the team en-route again – thank you to Lomond School, Sedbergh School, Ellesmere College, Haberdashers Monmouth, King's Taunton and Mount Kelly.

“I must thank our ride main sponsors: The Bailey Partnership, MIG Security and Edenvale Turf, and all our supporters who have generously given so far.”
