Two students from Shiplake College cycled 230 miles from London to Paris to raise money for schoolchildren in Africa. Matt Brown, left, and Olli Riley, both 18, set off from Trafalgar Square and arrived at the Eiffel Tower the following evening. Olli, from Henley, and Matt, from Hemel Hempstead, had to battle wind and rain on their way to Portsmouth on the first day, where they took a ferry to La Havre. They enjoyed better weather and road conditions in France. Olli said: “It was a challenging and arduous journey but we both persisted and found it to be a great adventure. We are extremely grateful for those in and out of Shiplake College who have donated to the cause.” They were raising money for Gap Africa, a charity which runs gap year projects on the continent. So far they have raised more than £650 which will go towards the construction of the Kikunduku Secondary School in Kenya.
