12 Ways to Champion Equality Online Footballers are used to harsh treatment from opposing crowds during the heat of battle over 90 minutes – it goes with the territory. But comments made about them from the world at large, over the internet, based on something other than their footballing ability? It shouldn't happen. Not in 2022. Regrettably, however, discrimination is still very much alive and kicking. With record attendances, plentiful TV coverage, some thrilling matches and – dare we say it? – a more evident sense of fair play than the men's game, the Women's European Football Championships is one of the sporting showpieces of the summer so far. National Online Safety's #WakeUpWednesday guide suggests how we can all help to keep it that way with some tips for championing equality online.
We are so proud that the local charity, HIPS, will be raising money for both Bradfields Academy and MidKent College. On Friday 2nd September 2022, seven intrepid cyclists will be taking on the challenge of cycling between two cathedrals, Rochester Cathedral in England and the Notre Dame in Paris. They are currently working on a Sensory Play Area in our Primary Community, which is a complete redesign and renovation of the outdoor play area. They are also working on an allotment project for MidKent College, to help students with learning difficulties access nature and learn horticultural skills. If you would like to donate to this wonderful cause, then please visit their fundraising page: https://bit.ly/3BP3m2z The 400+ kilometre ride will take the riders from Rochester, through Le Touquet and Beauvais before arriving in Paris. Split across three days the ride will test the cycling ability and endurance of each rider. The ride will set off from Rochester Cathedral at 6am on the 2nd September, with the Dean of Rochester, Philip Hesketh officially waving off the cycling adventurers. The Dean has tasked the cyclists with delivering an important gift for the Dean of Notre Dame - a bottle of Rochester Cathedral's own gin '604' produced by local distillery Copper Rivet. The riders will make their way to Faversham for their first refreshment break before continuing on to Dover where they will be able to rest during the channel crossing. We did consider static exercise bikes for the ferry crossing to keep them cycling, but decided this might be a bit mean after the ride from Rochester. Once on French soil the riders will be off again to where they will finish the day at Le Touquet/Etaples Rugby Club. Day two will be the toughest for the riders. They will leave La Touquet and head to Beauvais Rugby Club some 161km away, stopping at Abbeville for lunch. They will spend the night in Beauvais before starting the third and final stretch.. Day three sees them ride from Beauvais to Paris, although the shortest section at just 75km, it has the greatest elevation changes which present its own challenges! The riders will have to give everything they have left to push into Paris and will end the ride by presenting the Dean of Notre Dame with the bottle of Rochester Cathedral's 604 gin. We're sure you will join us in wishing the riders all the best for their travels!
