YOUNGSTERS pedalled more than 200 miles to raise money for a school in Nepal.

Children from Wimbish and Debden Primary Schools joined forces in a sponsored bike ride at the Carver Barracks airfield, Wimbish, last Friday.

Headteacher at Wimbish Primary School Christine Spain said: "We are very proud of all the children for their cycling efforts and we would like to thank the parents from both schools for supporting this event.

"All the money raised will go towards improving the library resources of the Himalaya Milan Secondary School in Tang Ting."

Both Wimbish and Debden villages twinned with Tang Ting in a ceremony in May last year.

The children, who were aged between four and 11 years old, cycled in excess of 1000 circuits - a total of more than 220 miles.
