Local primary school pupil William Brook is taking on a 10-mile cycle challenge to raise money for his school.

Eight-year-old William lives in Abbotsbury, but attends Thorner’s Primary School in Litton Cheney, and is hoping to raise as much money as possible doing something that he loves.

He will jump on his bike on Sunday, November 25th, starting at Hardy’s Monument at 9am and then make his way to Burton Bradstock Primary School.

William’s mum, Emma Sibley, said: “William has always had a passion for bike riding and is always looking to beat his own record, which is currently 7.7 miles.

“We thought, why not put this passion and energy into good use and do a sponsored bike ride to raise money for his school, who are trying to raise money to improve the outside provisions for the reception class and preschool area due to the rising number of pupils.

“Thorner’s Primary School has such a special place in our hearts and William is the third generation of our family to go there.

“Bridport Cycles has heard of Will’s challenge and is kindly servicing his bike for free. We have had so much support from everyone.

“William will be doing this come rain or shine, saying the muddier the better.”
