MALVERN under 15s rugby squad raised cash for their end of season tour to Devon with a sponsored bike ride without leaving the town.

They rode to Torquay and back but remained at the town’s Dyson Perrins Academy, cycling the 310-mile trip via almost 6,000 circuits of the outdoor courts in sunny but cold conditions.

The squad also aim to raise £1,000 for charity Help for Heroes before the end of the season and have a bag packing day at a local supermarket later this month.
