Parents and friends from Flax Bourton Primary School will attempt to walk Hadrian’s Wall in three days to raise money for the school library.

On May 23, eight hardy supporters will lace up their boots and set off on the 84-mile walk from coast to coast following the World Heritage Site.

This is not the first challenge supporters of the school have taken on.

In 2015, a group of parents, friends and teachers completed the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for a computer suite.

Kerry Northam, English subject leader, said: "We are extremely grateful to our fantastic parents for volunteering to take on such a physical challenge in order to support our school library.

"Any money raised will go towards increasing our library stock and updating our digital library system."

Children took part in a competition to design a logo for the challenge.

Mylie Golding won the contest and her design will feature on the team's clothing.

The team has raised £1,250, but members are hoping to hit the £4,000 mark.
