Witham: Maltings vice principal raises cash in honour of Alan Bailey
2:00pm Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
A Witham teacher took on the cycle of his life in memory of a much-loved colleague.
Daren White, assistant vice principal at Maltings Academy, wanted to take on a challenge after the death of sports teacher Alan Bailey.
Despite having not ridden for 18 years, keen athlete Mr White bought a bike and vowed to complete the 70km Cycle for Life event in aid of Farleigh Hospice.
He completed the course, which began and finished at the hospice and took in the Easters and the Rodings, in two hours and 55 minutes, just under the three-hour target he had set himself.
He said: “This has been a terrific challenge which I have thoroughly enjoyed."
Mr White raised £310 for the hospice.
To donate, text FVKP88 £1 to 70070.
