A group of students from Witchford Village College teamed up to pull a Lancaster Bomber along an aerodrome runway.

The 50 students took on the herculean feat on a visit to the Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby, Lincolnshire, to raise money for Children in Need.

The event was organised by a group of the college’s Year 10 students.

A spokesman for the school said: “These intrepid young people have organised several fundraisers within the school and for this event organised a donations page for people to directly donate money to the fund.

“Students who participated in the event also set out to gather sponsorships from their friends and family. Overall, the school has raised over £1000; and they haven’t stopped there.”
