With most pupils enjoying some well-earned rest and relaxation over half term, a group of pupils from Christ College’s Lower School House, Alway House, gave up a day of their holidays to raise funds for a very worthy charity.
Rhodri, Ethan and Joe came up with the idea to do a sponsored wheelbarrow push on the final Sunday of the holidays. Starting off at Theatre Brycheiniog at 10am, and taking it in turns to push, pull or sit in the wheelbarrow, the boys covered the distance to Talybont-on-Usk.
With a support crew of Milly, Jess and St Nicholas House pupil Ellis providing company and moral support on their bikes, the distance was soon covered.
A puncture on the first leg of the journey caused a delay and a rather bumpy ride for whoever was sat in the wheelbarrow but Rhodri’s Dad soon came to the rescue with a new tyre.
The return journey from Talybont to Brecon was duly completed, and a team of fellow Christ College pupils, consisting of Charlie, Louis, Will and Hywel, were there to greet them at the end of their 13.5 mile trek! With over £200 raised so far for the Alway House Charity, Harrison’s Fund, it was a great effort by all those involved
