St Peter Charity Bike Ride 2018 – Many of you will remember that in 2015, a group of parents and teachers cycled 150 miles from the original St Gildas’ school in Yeovil to celebrate 100 years since the nuns founded St Gildas’ school in Crouch End. In the process we raised £27,000 to fund the new playground at St Gildas’ School. We’re now planning to ride the 200 miles from St Peter-in-Chains Church, Doncaster to its namesake in Crouch End over the weekend of 8-10 June to raise additional funds for projects at our two schools.
