On Sunday the 12th of May, students, staff and friends of the Fifth Trust met for a sponsered cycle/walk to help raise funds towards a new vehicle to replace our minibus.
After meeeting at Toddlers Cove in Canterbury, the group headed out to the half way point at Chartham. They followed a dedicated walking and cycling path along the quiet and picturesque banks of the River Stour. The route to Chartam and back meant those who finished had travelled 7 miles.
Once we reached Chartham we enjoyed a picnic lunch together and took a short breather before heading out back to Canterbury.
About 35 people joined the fun, and our thanks goes to them for thier time and effort. It is estimated that their endeavours will help to raise in excess of £500 towards a new vehicle.
For students and carers who did not have thier own bikes, we were able to access the Wheel Potential Scheme. The scheme was founded in 2016 to provide adapted machines and a safe enviroment for adults with learning and physical disabilities with the oppertunity to experience cycling.

Due to the success of the day , we are hoping to hold a similar event in the future. We are hoping that even more of our students,staff and friends will join us in an effort to help us reach our target.
