It’s been a busy few weeks for a number of our JAZZ™ Apple Foundation award winners with many of their challenges entering the final stages. It’s now less than 100 days until award winner Rob King takes on the Prudential RideLondon 100 and we’re pleased to reveal that his training is going great. Amazingly Rob has already completed over 500 miles in training but he’s upping his schedule as he nears the big day with an extra two nights each week. Rob will be completing his challenge in a fantastic new cycling kit which was purchased for him by the Foundation so be sure to give him a wave if you see him on the big day.
Another hero of the JAZZ™ Apple Foundation is award winner Trevor Darnes who was given money as part of his fundraising efforts for Neuroblastoma UK. To help boost funds for this fantastic charity, 55-year old Trevor ran the London Marathon last month and managed to raise over £3800 after completing the race in just over three hours and 48 minutes. I think you’ll all agree with us that Trevor’s achievement is brilliant and he certainly deserves a huge congratulations.
And last but certainly not least is Haymoor Primary School in Poole who received a JAZZ™ Apple Foundation award to purchase some new swimming equipment. We’re delighted to let you all know that things have been going swimmingly with the team and all the children are delighted with their new kit. We’re hoping the new kit will encourage more students to get involved with the sport and take those already involved to greater heights.
