NCC staff gear up for their biggest challenge yet as they look to complete a 20 mile cycle for The Steve Prescott Foundation.
Having staged a series of fun fundraising activities to raise money for the great local cause, our focus now becomes rather serious, as 6 brave souls prepare to sweat it out!
Our journey starts at Southport on Saturday 9th August and will take us across the borders of Lancashire/ Merseyside until we reach our offices at Alexandra Business Park in St Helens.
Having raised over £100 so far in events which have included a sports themed activity day and a world cup sweepstake, we now hope to drum up funds as we strive to reach our target of £500.
As training time ticks away, here are some of the images which sum up our stories of blood, sweat and tears so far.
We embarked on our fundraising challenge earlier this year and our goal is to take part in as many sporting events as possible to help raise money for the charity of local sports hero Steve Prescott, who sadly passed away after a 7 year battle with cancer.

In earlier updates, we also detailed our plans to take on a 10k run challenge. However unfortunately this will no longer take place. Due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding injury and illness, our competitors had to withdraw from the event. But individuals can be rest assured that we will be thinking of other great ways to raise money instead.
If you have a great idea on what we can do next, we’d love to hear from you! Tweet us your suggestions at https://twitter.com/NCCHomeLearning or send us a message on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NCCHomeLearning?fref=ts
