The Lime Cycle

Coniston to Kelmscott Cycling Fundraiser 2019

A number of Scholars will be completing a 377km fundraising cycle from the grave of John Ruskin at St. Andrew’s Church, Coniston to the grave of William Morris at St. George’s Church, Kelmscott.

SPAB Lethaby Scholars 2016, Tríona Byrne, Declan Cahill and Gethin Harvey are putting the sketchbooks down to complete the expedition on two wheels. Accompanied by Conor Meehan (Scholar 2013), and hopefully other past Scholars and friends, the team will be undertake this challenge cycle over 3 days, from 19th April to 21st April 2019.

“Having all completed the prestigious 9-month SPAB scholarship programme ourselves at different points in the last 20 years, we are hoping to ‘give back’ to the scholarship fund in some way. We are all architects, engineers or building surveyors working in conservation of historic buildings, who are passionate about protection of built heritage and promotion of traditional craft skills. Morris and Ruskin are two of the biggest influences on the SPAB and therefore, by sponsoring future SPAB scholars, we will be enabling the legacy of their work and philosophy to be continued.” Declan Cahill

We would be extremely grateful for any sponsorship that you may be able to offer and know that all of this will go towards the Trusts goal of supporting two bursaries on the scholarship in the future. Please visit our Just Giving Page to Sponsor us.
