The Action 4 Schools initiative is busy fundraising once again, this time hosting a bingo night at the Laguna Social Club on Friday 30th May. Everyone is welcome, with booklets costing £10 including participation in a free raffle draw.
His Excellency the Governor Sir James Dutton and Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, were amongst the welcome party at the top of the Rock of Gibraltar when two cyclists finished their challenge to ride 1,700 miles from Bradford to the Rock in 17 days to raise money for good causes. Paul Sampson, a retired professional rugby player and Darren Kenny OBE a paralympic star cyclist and world record holder had been accompanied at various stages by other para-cyclists, elite women cyclists and riders from the Armed Forces, predominantly the Royal Marines but Paul and Darren were the only ones to complete the full distance.
As part of the Royal Marines 350th Anniversary celebrations a number of Royal Marines are taking part in the ‘1664 Challenge’. The Challenge aims to raise £500,000 for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund.
Throughout the last couple of months young people involved in this year’s youth exchange have been very busy fundraising for their exchange project.
Last month they organised a photography fundraiser, offering the popular Project ID and family portraits. The group would like to extend a massive thank you to those who came along to have their photo taken and supported the project.
The RGP was recently presented with a state of the art ‘Smart Board’ by the Bonita Trust. Fitted into the Training Department at New Mole House, the interactive wipe board will be immensely useful when giving briefings that include plans, maps and diagrams.
