£21,138.00, and counting, raised for Challenge 271

13 GFROY 6657

Physical Education teacher Mr Froy completed an epic challenge over half-term raising thousands of pounds for Kidney Research UK in the process.

Mr Froy launched Challenge 271 on the 3rd December 2014: a year after the loss of his father, Colin Froy, Police Constable 271, Hertfordshire Police.

Challenge 271 saw Mr Froy run 42km from East Runton to Norwich City Football club on day one; cycle 73km from Norwich to Barton Mills on day two; run 42km from Barton Mills to Granta Park, Cambridge on day three; cycle 73km from Granta Park to Hitchin on day four and finally run 42km from Hitchin to Watford High Street on day five.

Mr Froy received a hero’s welcome as he crossed the finish line in Watford on Saturday 30th May. Family, friends, colleagues, students and the local community were there to cheer him on and greet him at the end of his long journey.

Over the past six months and during the challenge, with the support of friends, family, the local community and the Kingsbury High School community, Mr Froy has raised more than £21,000.

Mr Froy said “colleagues and close friends have been amazingly supportive at barn dancing, sponge throwing, football tournaments, ice cream sales, non-uniform days and staff raffles. I can’t thank you all enough for your time, money and support.”
