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.
