A cyclist is taking on a fundraising ride in aid of St Giles Hospice.

Darren Potter will take on the challenge to help the Whittington-based charity, which has seen traditional fundraising hit by the coronavirus crisis.

He said:

“As I’m unable do normal fundraising rides due to COVID-19, I will instead ride for 19 hours.

“I’m going to ride a small local loop over and over again for 19 hours.

“I am hoping to raise as much as I can for a wonderful local cause that is still doing what it can to help those of us in need during these desperate times.”
