A group of five cyclists from the Bourne area have completed a 200-mile two-day cycle challenge to raise money for charity.

On September 13 the team set out from Stranraer, in Scotland. They completed the trip on their bikes achieving 130 miles on the first day and 70 miles the following day.

Chris Abel, who organised the event, wanted to raise money for Hope for Justice, an anti-human trafficking organisation who work to uncover and abolish modern-day slavery.

Chris and his wife Jacqueline wish to thank everyone who played a part in supporting the team and for the sponsorship money.

The group hope to raise about £1,500.

Mal Fry gave up his weekend to drive the team in a van lent by Halls Garage from Morton, who wanted to support the charity.
