Two second year pupils Dougal Cooper and Stuart Masson were part of the team in Aboyne Academy who won the YPI challenge securing £3000 for local charity Forget Me Not.
The charity had asked for audio visual equipment for their new resource centre and supplied a “wish list”.
Dougal and Stuart realised the total of this list was £3015 so decided to provide the extra cash and signed up for the gruelling Strathpeffer mountian bike event.
The boys cycled from 8pm till 4am raising an amazing total of £623.
It was a cold wet night but the boys completed their task and were delighted to present their cheque at Aboyne on Tuesday, sharing their adventure with everyone at the centre.
