Reece Weare, 12, took on a demanding cycle ride with his two friends, Emma Edwards, 13, and Jacob Fisher, 12, earlier this month to raise money for the appeal.
A Dunkeswell teenager and his two school friends have raised more than £250 for Sport Relief by cycling 23 miles through the Blackdown Hills.
Reece Weare, 12, took on the cycling challenge with his two friends, Emma Edwards, 13, and Jacob Fisher, 12 on Monday, March 12.
Reece’s mum, Sue, said: “Reece’s younger brother came home from school before half-term and had to do a sponsored readathon.
“Reece decided then he wanted to do a sponsored cycle ride and planned out the route with his grandad and printed off sponsor forms.
“All three parents are really proud - it is not like the youngsters had any training for it. We thought they would raise maybe £20 to £30 each, but when they got over the £200 mark, we were very impressed.”
