Two teachers from Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship (GANF) have completed an epic cycle ride covering 1,000 miles to raise valuable funds for their pupils.

Ollie Maltby, who teaches PE, and Ashley Caress, who is in charge of Health and Safety, took on the ultimate cycle challenge from Land’s End to John O’Groats during July, cycling the length of Britain to raise funds for the school.

Ollie said: “I took on this challenge to raise valuable funds for the pupils at Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship. The children I teach face challenges every day and they inspired me to face a challenge of my own, whilst raising money for them in the process.”

The pair, who were supported on their ride by fellow staff members Joe Bogumsky and Simon Buckberry - otherwise known as #TeamGANF, completed their epic challenge in a total of 10 days.

Through donations, they have raised more than £1,300 for Grantham Additional Needs Fellowship, which caters for pupils aged between three and 19-years-old with moderate to severe learning difficulties and complex needs.

Ollie and Ashley have been training since last Autumn and are delighted with what #TeamGANF have achieved.

The boys still hope to reach their ultimate fundraising target of £3,000. If you would like to make a donation, please visit their fundraising page online at https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/lejog2016
