A team of indoor rowers from a Colehill school has raised more than £300 for the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).
This ‘oarsome’ effort saw the team of eight boys from St Michael’s Middle School row the equivalent of 8km.
The team - Scott Lever, Robert Cooper, Cameron Lowes, Harley Richardson, Ryan Atkins, Connor Stanley, Malachi Robinson and Alex Jordan – spent last term training for this event.
Headteacher Ron Jenkinson, said: “The boys were training all last term and as an extra incentive they decided to hold a sponsored row to raise money for charity.
“They chose the RNIB because one of the team members, Harley Richardson, is visually impaired and it is a wonderful cause to support.
“We’re incredibly proud of all their efforts and the help they received from teacher Mr Fountain who motivated them all the way.”
