Teenager, Nicholas Roden, is spending two weeks this summer cycling 990 miles from Land's End to John O'Groats in aid of Help For Heroes, which helps wounded service men and women.
Nicholas (16), who is in Year 11 at the College, has set himself a fund raising target of £3,000 and has already been contacting local companies for sponsorship, as well as planning fund raising activities.
Nicholas, who hopes to join The Royal Marines, said he felt the charity was a very good cause as it helped soldiers who had been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. 'I'm looking forward to the challenge of the cycle ride, although I know it is going to be difficult.'
So far, Nicholas, who lives near Corwen, has had support from The Bike Factory in Chester, and he is now looking for more help. With support from the College Nicholas has completed a series of assemblies with Mrs Horner and is organising end of term sales of Help For Heroes wristbands, as well as other events.
Nicholas has recently set up a link on the official Help For Heroes website and donations can be made through www.bmycharity.com/karenroden as due to Nicholas being only 16 this sponsorship link has to go in his mother's name.
The College obviously wishes Nick all the very best for his fund raising efforts and with the hours of training that are going into preparing his body and mind for this incredibly demanding challenge.
If you can offer support of any kind then please contact the College or his Nick via his Help for Heoes website.
