WHAT AN INSPIRATION!
Jaimi Wilson came to see Helvellyn Class this morning. She has recently returned from three years cycling round the world - unsupported, with no phone and a budget of £7 per day.
Jaimi showed us lots of photos and told us all about her adventure. She even showed us her footballing skills!!
Jaimi is now in training to attempt to set a new record for a woman cycling around the world unsupported in the fastest time. It currently stands at 124 days - Jaimi is aiming for 120 days. She is due to set out in June 2020.
A huge thank you to Jaimi, we have all been inspired to set ourselves a personal goal.
