Glossop youngsters prove you're never too young to help others

The two boys receiving their goodie bags from Mark at their school Saint Marys in Glossop.

Proving you are never too young to think about helping others are two eight-year-olds from Whitfield. 

Flynn and Riley put up posters around the local area, saying they were happy to teach people to ride their bikes for two hours a night. 

Mark Jennings, Director of Peak Active Sport, was impressed with their attitude towards helping others when he read about the boys’ efforts. 

“They have done an amazing thing for their community, and we wanted to let everyone know how proud of them we are,” he explained. 

PAS decided to help improve the boys’ handy knowledge and invited them to join the PAS bike club at no charge.

Mark said: “We already had in plan our biking club and although the biking club was full, we created two new spaces and spoke to their parents because it’s a brilliant thing the boys are doing.” 

Mark went along to their St Mary’s School, off Gladstone Street, where the boys are pupils. An assembly was held to congratulate the boys and recognise their community spirit. 

In addition to being invited to attend the Biking Club, the boys were presented with a bag of goodies from PAS and High Peak Cycles, who donated some tools for the boys to repair their bikes with.  

“They stated the biking club last Thursday,” said Mark. “The weather was worse than it is now, and they got absolutely drenched and covered in mud and loved it.”
