A group of staff, parents and supporters of the Charter School North Dulwich are raising funds for a new bike shelter.
Organised by The Friends of Charter North Dulwich, the campaign aims to raise £14,000 for a shelter housing 84 bikes. Existing sheds can currently only accommodate 40 bicycles.
Headteacher Christian Hicks said: “We are really excited to be able to offer more room for staff and students to park their bikes safely and securely out of the rain during the school day.
“Already most students walk or cycle to school and we expect the shelter to encourage more active travel, particularly among students who live slightly further away.
“The new shelter is another demonstration of our twin commitments to the health and wellbeing of everyone within the school as well as the environment and local area and we are very grateful to the Friends for their continued support and generosity.”
Ms Baker, an English teacher, said: “Cycling to and from school helps clear my mind and gives me headspace, enabling me to prepare for the day ahead and unwind on the way home.”
Previous campaigns from the Friends group include funding new Astroturf and water fountains for the school.
