Competitive young riders at Redmile Primary School took part in their own annual mini Viking Challenge last Wednesday (September 27).

Children were able to bring bikes, scooters, prams, toy wheelbarrows - anything with wheels to complete the course.

All classes were given 20 minutes to do as many laps of the school field as possible.

Each year the Viking Challenge splits the proceeds between the school and their nominated charity. Last year both the school and the Derbyshire Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA) received around £11,000 each. This year the nominated charity is The Stroke Association.

Headteacher at Redmile Primary School Julie Hopkins said: “The Christian ethos of our small village school is very important to us and we’re very proud that despite having only 80 pupils, we’re able to give so much to charities that are important.”
