Luke gears up for marathon effort in aid of the New Bridge Multi Academy Trust

Date published: 02 May 2024

Members of the BNI Oldham Renaissance networking group joined forces to raise funds for New Bridge Fund, the charity arm of the Hollinwood-based New Bridge Multi Academy Trust.

This was in support of local builder Luke Sugden’s Ultramarathon, which takes place over the Yorkshire 3 Peaks on the Saturday (May 4).

Local business owners and New Bridge’s very own Executive Director of HR, Simon Smith, took part in a gruelling spin class at Oldham Leisure Centre.

The event raised over £500 as a contribution to Luke’s Just Giving fundraiser, which you can find here

Luke is aiming to raise £3,000 from his ultramarathon, all of which will be going towards New Bridge Fund and the MAT wide commitment to delivering life-changing experiences through the various residentials on offer, including Disney trips.

Good luck to Luke as he continues his preparations for the ultramarathon on Saturday!
