Pupils from King's Ely Junior School and choristers from the Ely Cathedral Boys' Choir cycled 60km between King's Lynn and Ely to help fundraise for the Cathedral Choir Tour Fund and Cancer Research UK, one of the school's chosen charities this year.

Having conquered the soaring weather and other issues, including a puncture, the team successfully made it home.
