A TEACHING assistant will be rolling his way to success as he sets off tomorrow (Wednesday) to skate from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

Andy Norman, who works at Lampard Community School, launched his Kickpush 2014 campaign in December 2012.

He is hoping to raise £10,000 for Asthma UK and the A Skate Foundation and has spent the last 18 months completing shorter, fundraising skates.

Andy will be setting off from John O’Groats tomorrow and hopes to complete the skate on August 23.

Anyone who wises to follow Andy’s journey or donate to his campaign can visit the Kickpush 2014 Facebook page.
