Cycling Challenge for St. Michaels Hospice

One of our students, Louis Ansfield, took up the challenge of cycling as many miles as he could as part of 'The Tour de Hereford' over the last 3 weeks, to raise money for our local St. Michael's Hospice.

Mum emailed us to say "He set out hoping to cycle about 200 miles & ended up completing over 450 miles in the 3 weeks! This would often involve him going for a bike ride straight after school for a safe 10 mile lap that we were happy for him to do on his own before the traffic became too congested. He would then go & cycle the same 10 mile lap after rush hour!

In terms of fundraising, we set up a Just Giving page hoping to raise maybe £100-150. To date, Louis has raised over £400! The comments people have left him have been amazing, calling him an inspiration & clearly very impressed with his effort!

We found out today that he has won his age category & he has already won a cycle jersey & a drinks bottle for other achievements during the 3 weeks.

He is going to be interviewed live this evening on BBC Hereford & Worcester at about 5.50pm about his challenge!

We are incredibly proud of the determination & commitment he has demonstrated"

All the staff at BHBS are very proud of what Louis has achieved
