On the news over the last year, the events in Ukraine have shocked the world. We've noticed that coverage in the news has recently fallen, but we recognise that the atrocities haven't disappeared, and have even worsened.
As we cycle the distance of east to west Ukraine, we hope to raise awareness of the intense difficulties the Ukrainians are being forced to live through, whilst appreciating that we shouldn't take anything we have for granted.
It is the bleakest humanitarian crisis in Europe this century, with an estimated seven million Ukrainians likely to flee the horror.
On 27th November, many of the Sixth Form at school will be cycling over a 12 hour period a distance of 1310km, in order to raise money the Royal Mail Ukraine Appeal.
We would be really grateful for any donations to this appeal - no matter how small that may be. Anything given will make a huge difference.
£5 could help provide 1,786 water purification tablets
£14 could help provide exercise books for a class of 50 children to help them continue their education in this time of crisis
£27 could provide an emergency shelter for one family, helping to protect children and keep them warm and safe
A big thank you from all of us xx
