There’s no limits on age when it comes to going #FurtherFasterGreater to raise funds to keep the new Magpas Air Ambulance flying.
Before the Easter Holidays, Sixth Form pupils at The Peterborough School., Hannah Bassett and Georgina Parker challenged themselves both physically and mentally and completed a marathon row of over seven hours to raise funds for Magpas Air Ambulance.
Each year The Peterborough School runs an Appeals Day to raise funds for its chosen charity, which this year is Magpas.
The sixth form pupils showed amazing initiative in coming up with the idea themselves of trying to set a new British record for a women’s under 19 lightweight tandem for rowing 100km, embracing the #FurtherFasterGreater theme and challenging themselves to go #Faster by beating the record.
We’re pleased to announce Hannah and Georgina’s time of 7 hours 38 minutes smashed the existing record of 8 hours!
We’d like to thank Hannah and Georgina for their amazing efforts, The Peterborough School for hosting us and for naming us as their chosen charity, and of course to everyone for their generous donations to the cause to support Hannah and Georgina to support us in our work to keep our new air ambulance flying and to continue providing lifesaving care by land and air to those who most need it.
The girls’ fundraising page is showing a huge £1,800 raised by their efforts. The school will add together the rest of the money raised on the day and by other activities and hand over the grand total to Magpas later in the year.
