AFTER 310 miles of rowing and pedalling, a charitable trio completed their 24-hour sponsored slog-and weren't even aching after.

Food technology teacher at Great Yarmouth High School, Peter Jones, who spent 33 years in the military, was joined by ex students Aaron Dighton, 20, and Danielle Breacker, 18.

AFTER 310 miles of rowing and pedalling, a charitable trio completed their 24-hour sponsored slog-and weren't even aching after.

Food technology teacher at Great Yarmouth High School, Peter Jones, who spent 33 years in the military, was joined by ex students Aaron Dighton, 20, and Danielle Breacker, 18.

They were cheered on by pupils and family during the event at the school last month, and have so far managed to raise £1,800 for Help for Heroes.

Mr Jones said “It got hard at about three or four in the morning when it was just us, but when we finished at 12.30pm lots of pupils were there supporting us. Afterwards I went to bed for a few hours before going to the pub to celebrate, but we discussed it after and none of us were aching too much.”

Keen to raise more money, he is now considering attempting a two-mile truck-pull along the seafront at Great Yarmouth.
