Two staff members from Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship set off tomorrow on a 1,000 mile cycling challenge across the country to raise valuable funds for school activities.

The staff members taking on the challenge are PE teacher Ollie Maltby and Ashley Caress, teacher in charge of Health and Safety, who are riding from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Ollie 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 hope to arrive in John O’Groats on Sunday, July 30.

Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship comprises Ambergate Sports College and Sandon School. They cater for children between the ages of three and 19 with moderate to severe learning difficulties and complex needs. Their pupils’ needs are wide ranging. Many are on the autistic spectrum, with others having ADHD and varying degrees of developmental delay, and some with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties.
