STUDENTS from Malmesbury School got in the saddle and cycled 250 miles in four hours for charity.

A total of 40 energetic pupils of the school's William House form group clocked up the miles as part of an exercise bike challenge last month to raise cash for cancer charity, the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Each student cycling a total distance of 10,000 metres in 30 minutes or less as part of the challenge.

Since 2010, William House has raised over £11,000 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

As a house, they ran over 150 miles and raised £600 for the charity in May.

Stephen Sutton, a 19 year old English teenager with incurable cancer who passed away recently, hit the headlines by raising more than £3 million pounds for the charity.

A spokesman for the school said the school is proud to continue their efforts alongside the remarkable fundraising of Stephen Sutton.
