TWO men will cycle the whole length of the UK in just nine days in aid of Weston Hospicecare.

James Poole and Dave Mullay started their mammoth expedition on Saturday.

Both men know first-hand the important work done by the hospice’s volunteers, who looked after ill relatives.

Dave, who lives in Draycott, is riding in memory of his father Alan while James, who lived in Cheddar and Sand Bay before moving to Cornwall, is taking on the challenge because the hospice looked after his father-in-law Len Panter.

Dave, speaking before the challenge got under way, said: “Both had cancer and were looked after by Weston Hospicecare and we are looking to thank them for all they have done for our families.”

A support car will complete the journey with them to ensure everything goes according to plan.

The pair have raised more than £1,000 in sponsorship so far and hope donations continue to flood in while they are riding.
