WILMSLOW High School teachers smashed their £300 target 10 times over with their 100-mile charity bike ride around Cheshire.

The 14-strong team staged the event in aid of Wilmslow Youth and Wilmslow Parish Food Friends, and raised an amazing £3,765 through their justgiving page.

One of the teachers said: "The toughest parts were the steep climbs from Bollington up Blaze Hill to the top of Macclesfield Forest early on in the ride, and the final 15 miles from Lymm, through Altrincham, Hale and Ashley back to the Wilmslow High School where the pace suddenly stepped up in a race to finish first.

It was a superb team effort and I am really proud of all the Wilmslow High School teachers who took part and everyone that was kind enough to donate money to the cause. Samantha Gregory, Katie Wynne and Kay White were our terrific support team who baked fresh sausage rolls, brownies and cookies to fuel us over our stops."
