Since its first race in 2015, the Tour De Yorkshire has quickly become one of the biggest sporting events in the region and for 2018, Goole College will help the residents of one of the route villages to enjoy the full spectacle.
On 3 May 2018, the racers will set off for Stage one, racing from Beverley to Doncaster. This stage brings the riders through the village of Rawcliffe, and it is here that the residents will benefit from a huge 11m x11m outdoor screen to watch the full race as it passes by their own front doors.
Working in partnership with Rawcliffe Parish Council, Croda and Cepac, Goole College will support a large village event for all the residents to enjoy on the first leg of this incredible race.
The students of Goole College will gain important work experience during the event, which will see Carpentry & Joinery students building frames to display items created by Cepac and painted by the two local schools, and 20 students from Health & Social Care and Childcare will help to support the schools as they spend time on the village green supporting and cheering the riders as they come through.
Caron Wright, Principal of Goole College said, “Goole College plays such an important role in our surrounding communities that we were proud to help support this excellent event. This event also shows our commitment to seeking vital work experience for our students, which provides them with team working skills and experience of working with the wider community.”
“This is also another example of how working in partnership can benefit the region and we are all looking forward to enjoying the race alongside our partners and the residents of Rawcliffe.”
