PUPILS at a South Derbyshire school are cycling hard to make it across the Pacific Ocean as part of a charity cycling challenge.
The Pingle School students took part in the ‘Around the World in 80 School Days’ cycling challenge set by fund-raiser Chelsea Neat and donned pirate outfits to help them cycle across the ocean.
Dan Brown, head of physical education at the Coronation Street school, spoke to the Mail.
He said: “We thought it would be great fun to have the younger children, who are taking part in the challenge, dressing up in pirate outfits to encourage them to cycle those few extra miles.
“The whole challenge has been great fun, the students are doing a brilliant job and will raise lots of money for Help for Heroes and Sports Relief.
“We have welcomed many of our friends into school to help out and are looking forward to the New Year and many more members of our wider school community joining in with the fun.”
