Students at an Ely school raised £1,130 for an eating disorder charity by walking 4,000 kilometres between them.
Pupils at Withburga House – one of the girls’ day houses at King’s Ely Senior – decided to walk their way around Europe - virtually.
Alongside housemistress Sue-Ellen Godde and house tutors, the students received donations and sponsorship in aid of Beat.
Miss Godde said: “We easily reached our goal in three weeks, ahead of schedule, with great contributions from all students.
“A special mention must go to Jess Harding in Year 11, who raised £340 towards this very worthwhile cause.
