Six Barnsley College staff have completed a tough charity cycling challenge by riding through the night from Manchester to Blackpool.

Craig Leonard, Gillian Lodge, Garry Lyon, Paul Skelland, Darren Speight and Mia Wesson raised £230 for the British Heart Foundation after successfully tackling the 52-mile route from the Trafford Centre to the Lancashire coast.

Their latest effort followed on from the completion of the 2013 Coast-2-Coast cycling challenge which involved college staff riding from Southport to Hornsea, East Yorkshire.
