As we near the end of the penultimate week of Clague Reconnect, Architect, Charlotte Stone, grabs her bike ready to complete yet another 10 miles to add to the overall mileage to connect the Clague team and raise money for the Pilgrims Hospices.
Charlotte set out from Canterbury, after picking up the virtual baton delivered safely from Birchington, fully hydrated and ready for the challenge ahead, to make her way to Faversham.
The route Charlotte was to take was the scenic one, passing through the villages of Chartham, Old Wives Lees and Gushmere, to name a few, leading her over the M2, past Faversham Town Football Club to her destination, The Abbey School, to check on how the replacement classroom block is currently proceeding on site.
The Abbey School proposal achieved planning in January 2020, to provide 13no. classrooms to replace existing classrooms, currently accommodated within a 1960’s block, which is scheduled for demolition in Phase 2.

Upon successfully arriving in Faversham, Charlotte, as many before her, made her way back home to Canterbury, totalling 21 miles for her leg of the relay. Another effort that way exceeds the minimum distance required to be covered, once again showing the commitment to the cause in the attempt to raise as much money as possible and bring the Clague team together once again.
Please celebrate Charlotte’s achievement and donate to the Pilgrims Hospice. Donations can be made on the following link https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/ClagueReconnect
Charlotte, in her challenge, checked in on a project, making sure all was well, just like many of us have been doing with each other over this vulnerable time we are living. ‘One of the best feelings in the world is knowing that your presence or absence both mean something to someone.’
Next time we find out how Architect, Kate Fisher, got on when she bounces all the way to Chartham.
