Our Q2Q4 charity bike riders arrived at Buckingham Palace with smiles on their faces and a cheering crowd after cycling over 200 miles across six days.
The girls and staff set off on their cycle to London from school on Tuesday 19 July, experiencing the adventure of cycling across the beautiful English countryside all the way to Buckingham Palace, hence the rides name, Queen’s to Queen’s!
The team were raising money for The Alzheimer’s Society and are so pleased to have smashed their initial target of £2,200, so far raising over £3,600 for the charity!
The staff documented their progress through their dedicated bike ride Twitter page Q2Q4BikeRide @BikeQ4, keeping family and friends updated every day.
Organiser and team member Mrs Joanne McKeirnan said: “This is the fourth year we have taken on this challenge and it is such an amazing experience for the girls. It is great to see the support and encouragement they provided to each other throughout the challenge, spurring each other on when legs were tiring. They were all fabulous and I couldn’t be more proud, showing true grit and determination to succeed and raise as much as they could for charity. A unique event to be part of and memories made that they will no doubt treasure for life!”
