Kian Pearson, a pupil of Alfreton’s David Nieper Academy is bidding to be the youngest person to do the John O’ Groats to Lands End cycle race in less than 20 days.

He will be 12 when he tackles next month’s challenge with his dad and uncle and aims to raise £10,000 in sponsorship for Dementia UK.

Members of Alfreton Rotary Club visited the academy to make a donation to the cause.
