A first for Richmond Cycling Club as it honours young community champions

Richmond Cycling Club has awarded its prestigious Chairman’s award to three Richmond School cyclists, who set themselves demanding challenges and, in doing so, raised over £4,800 for the Butterwick Hospice.

 

Each year, Richmond Cycling Club hosts an awards’ ceremony. The majority of the awards are based around a series of time trials held during the summer months. However, the Chairman’s Award stands out as being awarded at the discretion of the Chairman to a club member, or members, who have done something very special over the last year.  Gordon Love, Chairman, had no hesitation in awarding the accolade to brothers Andrew and James Lunn and their friend Marcus Weston, who demonstrated bravery, compassion and sheer determination to do something incredibly special for their community.

The only way is up for Brandon!

The only way is up for Brandon Sutherland-Parker, a Year 13 student at Richmond Sixth Form College, as in just three days, his media studies music video attracted over 2,000 hits on Youtube!  Brandon’s fabulous A-level media coursework music video was inspired by his passion for dance.  Six months in the making, Brandon choreographed, produced, directed and edited the film to the track ‘Level Up’, by Ciara, choosing this song for its catchy tempo and positive message and vibe. His concept developed from an idea to showcase dance from a number of different angles and sets within College, culminating in a mass ensemble on one of the sports fields.

Christy’s Christmas Card design is the winner!

This year, we ran a competition for students to design the School’s Christmas Card. 

We are delighted to announce that the winning entry is a stunning design by Christy Swift in Year 12.  Christy’s beautiful artwork stood out as it really sums up the feeling of Christmas in our community, with the iconic Richmond Castle as the backdrop and a vibrant red robin adding just the right amount of festive cheer. So, a huge thank you to Christy for creating such a fabulous design.
