After 3 years without it, the Togher Trials are making a return, bigger and better than ever! In the last Togher Trials, in 2019 we raised over £1,700 for our school and we hope to raise even more this year. This huge sum included some sponsorship from my own Togher Trial, cycling 26 miles from Lincoln Cathedral to School. The money raised was split 50/50 between our school fund and raising money for Cancer Research.
The Togher Trials will take place over 5 days starting on Monday 19 June 2023 with the final event being a water butt race during Sports Day which is Friday 23 June.
How it works:
Each child will take part in a sporting activity each day for a week. To raise funds for the school, we would like children to be sponsored for taking part in all of the different activities. A sponsor form has been sent home via ParentMail but a copy can be downloaded by clicking HERE. Any amount raised, no matter how small, will be gratefully received and very much appreciated.
The timetable for the week is:
TUESDAY: Obstacle Course
THURSDAY: How Far Can You Run?
FRIDAY: The Water Butt Race
As you can see, there is something for everyone to enjoy! If your child would like to be sponsored for this exciting fundraiser please return the sponsor form before Friday, 16 June 2023, the money is not required at this point. Sponsor forms will be returned to you after the final event so that monies can be collected. All sponsor money should be handed in by Monday 3 July 2023.
My Togher TRIALathlon – Thursday 22 June
We couldn’t let the Togher trials make a return without another Togher Trial for me! So, for this year, I have gone even bigger, to form the Togher TRIALathlon. I will cycle 25 miles from Lincoln to Belmont, run 3.5 miles to the Meres Leisure Centre and finally I will swim for 1 hour. The money raised from this part of the trials will be split 50/50 between our school funds and Young Minds charity. We chose Young Minds as it links directly with our work on the 5 Ways to Wellbeing and the high priority we place around children’s mental health.
