Pupils walk from Bradford to Ilkley to raise funds for Yorkshire Air Ambulance
4:21pm Wednesday 18th June 2014 in News
BRADFORD Grammar School pupils have made the epic walk from their school to Ilkley, raising £4,000 for charity in the process.
A total of 120 Year seven pupils (pictured) donned colours of the upcoming Tour De France and headed north as part of a fundraising campaign to raise cash for Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Chellow Heights Special School.
The sponsored walk was also in the memory of Peter Kewley, who taught Economics at the school for 37 years and died earlier this year.
The walkers went along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal to Shipley Glen before walking over miles of moorland to Ilkley - which will be one of several Bradford district towns and villages the race passes through.
After the 12-mile walk the pupils took the train back to their school.
