A big 'Thank you' to Nick for our lovely new bench

Nick has been at Orchard Manor for 5 years and has a keen interest in keeping fit.  He decided we would like to raise money for mindfulness benches, a project to put seating in peaceful places around the school grounds where visitors, pupils and staff can take some time out.

Nick cycled 100 miles in one day at Torbay Velopark with his PE teacher.  They started very early in the morning and completed the 100 miles by 6pm.  Nick raised £1,098 to buy the benches which was matched by the SPT.  Nick then felt he would like to get a bench for other schools in the Trust and he decided that Pencalenick School should have one.  The bench has been sited on the terrace overlooking the Italian garden.
