Have your say

When staff at Tesco supermarket in Horncastle wanted help, they didn’t send for Ghostbusters....they called in pupils from a local school instead.

The store had organised a ‘Bikeathon’ to raise money for Diabetes UK.

The aim was to clock up the equivalent numbers of miles involved in a journey to Lapland.

Fortunately, pupils from class 3KC at Horncastle’s St Lawrence School were only to happy to lend a hand - and plenty of pedal power.

They were soon hard at work clocking up the miles - and collecting money - to help staff towards their final target.
