Teacher cy­cles 185 miles in 12 hours

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

A TEACHER has cy­cled 185 miles in one day to raise money for his school.

An­thony Rev­ell (pic­tured), from Dundee’s Kingspark School, ped­alled the dis­tance to raise money for the de­vel­op­ment of the school’s out­door learn­ing yurt.

The cy­cle rep­re­sented one mile for ev­ery pupil and he aimed to raise £1,850 – a tar­get he is close to mak­ing.

An­thony said: “It was sur­pris­ingly OK. We had loads of sup­port from par­ents and car­ers so that was quite mo­ti­vat­ing. The sup­port has been amaz­ing.

“It was quite a long day but re­ally good fun and for a worth­while cause.”

The cy­cle started at 6.30am from St An­drews and fin­ished there about 12 hours later.

His jour­ney took him through the lo­cal au­thor­i­ties that have pupils at the school.
