FOUR friends cycled 45 miles on Saturday to raise money for the UK’s leading stroke charity. Organiser Dayle Lane, 21, of Ancaster Road, hopes to have raised over £500 for the Stroke Association with the sponsored ride from Bourne to Skegness.

It is the second year that Dayle and friends Daniel Woodland, 20, of Waterloo Drive, Morton, Eloise Reader, 20, of Wisteria Way, Bourne and Emily Holmes, 20, of Leofric Avenue, Bourne have attempted the challenge.

Their efforts were inspired by the support Dayle’s grandmother, 74-year-old Bourne woman Daphne Cook, received when she had a stroke.

After falling ill Emily had to drop out after 30 miles but the remaining three knocked 10 minutes off last year’s time, finishing in four hours and 41 minutes. Dayle said: “We had a few aches and pains when we finished, but we’re really proud and will be even prouder when we’ve collected all the money in.”
