Teachers tackle Cumbrian challenge.
On Saturday the four strong team from Newcastle School for Boys in Gosforth will embark on a 33km hike through the Lake District in a bid to raise more than PS1000 for UK charity Walking with the Wounded.
French teacher and former serviceman Charles Drax will be joined by deputy headmaster Graeme Hallam, director of sport Lee Hogarth and headmaster David Tickner, all in their 40s.
"The Challenge is comprised of two courses, Tough and Tougher," said Mr Hallam. "We've opted for the Tougher one - heaven knows why. It seemed like a good idea at the time."
