18 Feb The Long Ducker Bike Ride 2021
Following the success of last year’s Long Ducker Ride comprising the three routes of 40, 70 and 100 miles, we are pleased to confirm that (covid-19 permitting) we will be running the Long Ducker Ride event this year on Sunday 5 September 2021.
In 2020, the Long Ducker events raised in excess of £250k. In total the Shaftesbury Enterprise, Harrow School’s outreach programme, donated over £500k to great causes supporting vulnerable young people across north London, so your efforts on two wheels were very much appreciated and we look forward to the success of the next event.
Registration will be open in March at www.longduckerride.co.uk. With a fair wind, vaccines and indomitable Long Ducker spirit, we look forward to celebrating in style in September.
Anecdotal evidence backed by preliminary research shows that the educational attainment gap between the most vulnerable pupils and their peers is widening. These cohorts will face significant barriers to progress, affecting their future employment and lifetime earnings, which, will have an impact on wider society. Together, we have raised over £400,000 to support nearly 10,000 young people across Harrow and Brent, with more funding to follow.
