About FOCS

Friends of Crudwell School (FOCS) is a registered charity (registered charity number: 1121210) and exists to support the school and to fundraise for the extras that make our children's learning a better experience. We also organise events that are fun for all and include the wider community.

Not the Crudwell Bike Ride - June 2020

If there is one thing to take away from 'Not the Crudwell Bike Ride' it is that the children of Crudwell School are AMAZING!!!!!

 

After 30 days of cycling they managed to cover 5,007 miles completing a virtual European tour including cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Prague, Rome, Budapest, Athens and back to Marseille. They cycled in pouring rain, scorching sunshine and 35mph winds, there were crashes and falls but they did not give up; they kept pedalling. Some learning to ride a bike for the first time, some developing from nervous riders to being able to ride 12 miles in a single ride and some riding everyday and covering 500, 600 or even 700 miles in the month.

 

There was also a fantastic team of adult and secondary riders. The whole school community covered 11,867 miles, further than London to Sydney!


Thank you to everyone who supported the fundraising effort. The final amount raised is expected to be about £4,500 (incl. Gift Aid) which is more than double the initial target smiley. However, you are still able to donate at https://www.gofundme.com/f/not-the-crudwell-bike-ride if you have not already done so.

 

A massive congratulations to everyone who participated, every single one of you should be proud of your achievements, we certainly are! We look forward to signing you all for the school team when the proper Crudwell Bike Ride returns next year!

Crudwell Crackers 2018

A team of parents/carers (named the 'Crudwell Crackers' by the pupils) had entered the Bath Half Marathon to raise money for FOCS. However, this was unfortunately cancelled due to snow. Not to put off, some of them decided to run a half marathon anyway, but around Crudwell instead of Bath!
