Cyclists from Gardiner Haskins Homecentre in Cirencester raise £6,000 in charity cycle from Land's End to John O' Groats
A DUO of intrepid cyclists from across Gloucestershire put metal to the pedal when they rode from Land’s End to John O’ Groats.
With donations still pouring in, Mark Stephenson from Sherston and Andy Stockwell from Kempsford are hoping to raise £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Care and the Cotswold Care Hospice.
The pair, who both work at Gardiner Haskins in Cirencester, have so far notched up a total of around £6,000 for the 10 day cycle that they completed in July.
Speaking after the epic challenge, Mark Stephenson said: “I think the hardest part has been to reign in our appetite after the trip.
“We were so used to eating lots and often that it can be hard to adjust.”
Income protection specialists Cirencester friendly generously gave the boys £1,000 towards their grand total.
Paul Hudson, chief executive officer of Cirencester friendly, said: “This is such an impressive achievement and I sincerely congratulate them all for completing what is, without a doubt, a very difficult challenge.”
