A group of teachers are hoping to raise vital funds for their school through an upcoming charity challenge.

Staff from Newbarns Primary and Nursery School will be taking part in the Coniston to Barrow Walk on May 11.

'Team Newbarns' will be tackling the 21.1 mile-long route, which is a part of the wider Keswick to Barrow challenge on the same day.

The journey will see them start at Coniston Sports Club before making their way to Barrow.

A spokesperson from the school said: "They have all been training really hard to ensure they are the best they can be on the day."

All donations are made to the Keswick to Barrow Walk Charity, with a  percentage of this donation used to fund the cost of the walk as well as supporting local charities in south Cumbria and north Lancashire.

The rest of the money raised by the teachers will be going to Newbarns.

Each participant for the school has their own fundraising page, which you can find links to via Newbarns' Facebook page.
