A BARNSTAPLE teaching assistants mission to skate from Lands End to John OGroats is being officially launched tomorrow (Thurs). Last year the Gazette revealed how Andy Norman, who works at Lampard Community School, planned to long-boarding the length of the UK for charity. Mr Norman hopes his Kickpush 2014 campaign will raise £10,000 to split between Asthma UK and the A Skate Foundation. He plans to undertake the three-four week challenge in August 2014 and the launch party will mark the start of a year of fundraising skates ahead of the final push. Those wishing to support Kickpush 2014 can enjoy live music from iFunk, Steve Bear Man Beardsley on the decks and beat-boxing from Rouge at Lilicos tomorrow. The event will kick off from 8pm with a fundraising raffle during the evening. For more information on the campaign visit www.kickpush2014.com.
