John o'Groats to Lands End

This weekend we have played host to our good friend Piers who is cycling from John o'Groats to Lands End over a two week period. He has a tight schedule that he can't waver from with accommodation arranged along the route. So we were a good halfway stop off in Manchester for him, we literally hung out the bunting to greet him. The enormity of what he is doing only really sunk in as he relayed his tales from week one, an impressive life enhancing challenge, solo and unsupported. He left us this morning, heading towards his next destination - Ironbridge, between Wales and The Midlands.

He is raising money for Get Kids Going, a national charity which gives disabled children and young people the opportunity of participating in sport. If you'd like to support him there is a link below to his fund raising page.
