A TEAM of super fit staff from Stagecoach South West today are cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise money for charity.
The trio of Jeff Hiscoke, Clive Gillman and Andrew Bradford left Land's End on August 17 and are aiming to complete the 1,048 miles in just 17 days, arriving in John O'Groats on September 2. They are using state-of-the-art tracking equipment that will enable supporters, friends and family to monitor their progress, during which they will be covering up to 90 miles in a single day.
Stagecoach South West has donated £700 to cover the cost of a support vehicle accompany the team along the entire route.
Michael Watson, managing director of Stagecoach South West, said:"We are really proud of our staff and delighted to help; the support vehicle is a very important backup for these endurance events. We wish them all the very best of luck and would encourage others to support them too and donate."
All donations will be split equally between the Saint Francis Hospice, Cancer Research UK and British Heart Foundation.
