The Tour de Bridlington is coming back for a third year - and it promises to be the biggest event so far.

Organised by students, staff and governors at Headlands School, the 2017 challenge has set its sights on raising £10,000 for five Bridlington organisations which work with young peole.

There are a number of sporting challenges planned to test beginners and fitness enthusiasts, ranging from a 100-mile bike ride to a two-mile fun run.

There will also be a family fun day on the school field, as part of the programme on Saturday, May 6.

Headlands associate assistant head David Stamper: “The Tour De Bridlington has raised lots of money to benefit the children of Bridlington already and this year we are hoping to go big.

“Last year the event raised around £7,000 to be shared around local clubs and we are aiming for at least £10,000 this year.

“We want the whole community to benefit and get involved alongside having a great family fun day while raising loads of money.

“Thank you very much to all support we have had so far.”

Proceeds from this year’s Tour will go to Bridlington Gymnastics Club, Bridlington Rangers JFC, Bridlington Swimming Club, Bridlington Club for Young People and Headlands School’s student council.

The school would also like to hear from businesses who can help with attractions for the fun day.
