Three pupils from Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Horncastle have completed an amazing charity challenge - with a little help from the police.

Will Beckett, Angus Graham and Luca Saggiorato hit on the idea of travelling across Lincolnshire, using as many different modes of transport as possible.

They duly completed their task - and raised £1,000 for three different charities - The Nomad Trust, the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance and St Barnabas Hospice.

They used 29 different methods of transport including a mini-bus, a bicycle ,a tractor and even a canoe.

However, when it came to the journey from Horncastle to Partney, they called in the police.

The three youngsters completed that particular segment - in the back of a police van.

They were accompanied by two of the town’s PCSO,s Keith Briggs and Zaza Warren.

PCSO Briggs said: “It was an amazing effort by the boys and helping them out was the least we could do.”

The intrepid threesome actually launched their bid by train from Retford, camped overnight in Woodhall Spa - and finished in style - with a lap of honour in Skegness.
