A student cycled 63 miles to help pay for a once in a lifetime trip to Borneo.

Year 11 Neale-Wade student Jake Patrick, joined by his father Mark, pedalled for eight hours to raise £900, which will go towards covering the costs of his month-long stay in Borneo.

He is visiting the country with Camps International to do charitable project work.

The pair set off from Wells towards Heacham and then on to Fakenham before returning to where they started.

Mr Patrick said: “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in sponsoring me - local businesses, friends and family.”
