Archant

All the students at Sidmouth College set out on a 20km sponsored trek to raise a whopping £11,000.

The youngsters ‘wore it red’ to support Devon Air Ambulance, which will take a share of the pledged cash, as they walked from the school to Colaton Raleigh and back again.

Year 13 student Ben West was first back, in just one hour and 58 minutes – smashing the previous record of two hours 50.
