Around 340 children, from Hillside Primary School, Newsome, took part in a sponsored cycle event to raise money for school funds.
The event was timed to coincide with the Yorkshire stage of the Tour de France and the children pedalled 200km, (124miles), around the school grounds, to match the distance the cyclists will travel.
Children didn’t have to do all the work themselves, as they were joined by parents, members of staff and a few specially invited guests.
These included local Green Party councillors Julie Stewart-Turner and Andrew Cooper and Andy Booth, Ambassador for Huddersfield Town Foundation.
The event was organised by learning mentor Jill Mellor and also included a themed-lunch for the children, stalls, refreshments and a raffle.
The children had made bunting in Le Tour colours and the day culminated in the announcement of the lucky winners of 16 brand new bikes.
These had been generously donated by Christian Armitage of bikes24-7.com and Andrew Choi, executive director of Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.
The school held a prize draw, with a winning boy and a girl from each year group.
Christian Armitage and Andrew Choi attended the event at Hillside, to hand over the bikes in person, along with Ellie Lyons, marketing manager at the Chamber of Commerce and Mandy Taylor and Rachel Taylor from the Huddersfield Town Foundation.
The charity Streetbikes donated 11 reconditioned bikes to Hillside, which were used by children during the event. These were given out as runner up-prizes.
Headteacher, Dawn Horton, said “I am constantly amazed by some people’s overwhelming generosity. The look of delight on the children’s faces when they learned they had won a bike, is something that will stay with me for a very long time”.
