Mr Maltby and Mr Caress set off on Saturday 23rd July on a 1,000 mile cycling challenge across the country to raise valuable funds for school activities.

The teachers who took on the challenge cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats with support from two other staff members, Mr Bogumsky and Mr Buckberry.

Mr Maltby said: “I decided to take on this challenge because the children I teach face challenges every day and they have inspired me to face a challenge of my own. And if I can raise money for them in the process then how fantastic is that!”

Ollie and Ashley have been training since last Autumn and #TeamGANF completed their challenge arriving in John O’Groats on Sunday, July 30.

Mr Caress said of the challenge: “It was the unknown for me, to be honest.  I had to buy a road bike and learn how to use it.

“We did about 100 miles a day for nine days. Typically, we’d get up at half past five, have breakfast and be on our way.

“They were generally 12 hour days, with about ten hours on the bike.”
