Gareth Franklin, Lee Wright, Tommy Treacher, Jeremy Hargrave, Matthew Warfield and Steve Cousins raised more than £10,000 cycling around South Holland, West Norfolk and Wisbech to clock-up 100 miles.

And we will ride 100 miles

A group of South Holland cyclists braved atrocious weather to cover 100 miles and raise more than £10,000 for charity.

The gang of six hit the road at 5.30am on Saturday and battled wind and rain all day for their challenge.

They are raising money for an appeal to build a Maternity Bereavement Suite at King’s Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The friends started cycling together during lockdown and decided to put their pedal power to good use, despite the rain.

“I was the one who said we should move the date because of the weather,” said Tommy Treacher.

But the team decided to carry on and battle the elements to get the miles covered.

“It didn’t stop raining all day and it was a real achievement,” he added.

Donations will go to the QEH appeal which is looking to build a special place for parents to spend time with their children away from the maternity area.
