Lympstone school friends complete school funding cycle challenge

A group of Lympstone school friends have completed a cycle challenge to raise cash for assault course equipment.
After an appeal by headteacher Emily Mellor to raise funds for new ‘Trim Trail’ kit, pupils Rimmi Davies, Dylan Mountain and Reuben Palmer decided to combine fundraising with a desire to cycle the Exe Estuary Trail.
After completing the challenge, the boys have raised more than £500 for the primary school, which is looking to net more than £25,000 for the new equipment.
The boys set off from the centre of Lympstone, heading for Exmouth, and caught a ferry across to Starcross.
From there, they stopped at the Turf Hotel, where they sold cakes and cookies, raising another £85.
They caught a ferry back across the River Exe to Topsham and cycled back home to Lympstone.
