Ex Pupils Take on 2012 Kayak Challenge

Four ex Sandbach School pupils are taking on the 2012 kayak challenge. The team will be kayaking 201.2KM around major lakes in the Lake District, over 6 consecutive days, 16th to 21st April 2012.

They are taking on the Gold Challenge: 2012 km Challenge: and will be raising money for the British Red Cross.

In April 2012 we will be travelling 201.2km by kayak in 6 days around many of the famous ‘lakes’ in the lake district. The event is part of the London 2012 Olympic gold challenge in which challengers will complete either 20.12km, 201.2km or 2012km. The mileage is shared between all contestants but we are being different. We are each doing the 201.2km totalling 804.8km.
“It will be no easy feat”…. The team is lead by Glyn Smith an avid kayaker and outdoor connoisseur. He has never attempted anything so vast before but believes “the challenge will push the team to their mental, physical and emotional limits” – all to raise funds for the British red cross… It will be “a challenge of challenges” especially as the majority of the team – Calum Bradley (2* kayaker), Edward Chappell and Stephen swaits have only kayaked a handful of times as part of the varied curriculum at the the boys school in Sandbach.
We aim to raise a minimum of £2012 for the British red cross but believe much more is possible with your help. There are many ways you can donate – via txt, our website: and in person at any of our fund raising events.

Check out their website where you can sponsor the team of Glyn Smith, Calum Bradley, Edward Chappell and Stephen Swaits, you could win a kayak, and find out all about their challenge:

Best of luck to the team from all at Sandbach School.
