Pedal for Scotland 2018

Cartoon describing the benefits of rising a bicycle. Including, it feels like flying!

For the last few years a group of parents and pupils have taken part in Pedal for Scotland’s cycle from Glasgow to Edinburgh. This event is a highly successful fundraiser and this year we are hoping to enter two Trinity Teams with separate fundraising goals:

  • Trinity Academy Charitable Trust – open to anyone; with fundraising going to our charity. The Trust supports a wide range of charitable donations to the school and pupils.
  • Team Sri Lanka – open to anyone; with fundraising contributing to the fundraising target for the School’s Hockey and Rugby tour to Sri Lanka.

The cycle is a closed-road event on Sunday 9th September. Most of us will be doing the 45-mile route, but there are also 10 and 100 mile alternatives. The 45-mile route is a mixture of hills and flat roads that can be completed by riders with a wide range of cycling skills.

  1. If you would like to take part in either team please get in touch with us and we will pass on details to the two teams.
  2. To register as an “individual” for the 45-mile event, register for the Classic Challenge and choose the Wave 2 departure time (8:00-8:30am).

If you would like to learn more, or register for the alternative distances, details are on the Pedal for Scotland website.

The 50:50 Club is a monthly lottery where 50% of the income goes to the winning member and the remainder goes to the school to help buy equipment or finance activities for the pupils.

  • We also require 12 trifles that are big enough to serve 10 people.

Winter Wine Tasting

Selection of red and white wines in glasses

We are holding a wine tasting in the school on Friday 10th November and the theme for the evening is Seven wines for Christmas Day.

Ashton from Appellation Wines will once again guide us through a selection of wines that will work well with smoked salmon, turkey or goose, Christmas pudding and even that family game of Twister! You can order wines on the night for delivery before Christmas.

These have always been fun evenings, a great way to meet other parents and ease yourself into the weekend.

Cost is £15 a head – please contact us if you want tickets.
