The team from Teme House, which houses 65 boys, ran the distance collectively, with students from as far as Hong Kong taking part.

Isac Ingemarsson, Lancing College charity rep, said: “The hope was to raise £874 and awareness for Turning Tides.

“In the last week of term, the boys reached their goal and completed the 874 miles and in doing so, surpassed the £874 target, raising £1,145 for Turning Tides.”

Sophie Moore, Turning Tides’ school and youth fundraising officer, said: “We are always delighted to be a chosen charity by local fundraisers, such as this brilliant effort from Lancing College.”
