‘The Rowing Marine Challenge’ update

Tuesday, 6 March 2018 saw a landmark achievement in the ’Rowing Marine Challenge’.  Ivybridge Community College staff and students have, through their fantastic efforts, reached the first 200.000km distance marker!  WELL DONE!

We, as a College are supporting Lee  Spencer’s charity and will make our attempt at the same distance across the Atlantic (5.6 million meters or 3,500 miles!) as his planned second solo trip.  

The ’Rowing Marine Challenge’ is ongoing and staff and students are welcome to come to the gym and participate.  

Thank you to everyone involved for their support and spreading the positive message of
Lee Spencer who is "not defined by disability".
