Blind Veterans UK would like to congratulate a group of twelve A level students at Sutton Valence School in Maidstone, Kent for completing a gruelling challenge of cycling 466 miles.

The Sutton Valence boys pledged to raise £5000 for Blind Veterans UK but instead managed to raise an incredible £8,350 and the donations are still growing! http://www.justgiving.com/teams/SVSchallenge

Jamie Walsh, Master in charge and organiser said, "This has been a fantastic School community effort with many people giving significant amounts of time and money to support the team and a charity the school has been associated with for a number of years. We would not have been able to do this without their help. The boys have all been training and fundraising for almost three months and their commitment and enthusiasm has been a real credit to them".

We would like to thank all the boys, teachers and parents from Sutton Valence School for the support they have given Blind Veterans UK.
