Grandfather, Cyril Holland recently took on the epic journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats with friend Allan Gooch to raise funds for Meningitis Now and Pancreatic Cancer UK.
Meanwhile, children from St Teresa’s School and Nursery, including Cyril’s grandson and friend of Alfie, cycled sponsored laps of the playground for every mile Cyril and Allan completed.
"Allan and I were delighted to use our bike ride from Lands’ End to John O' Groats to raise money for two worthwhile charities. The links to St Teresa's Parish and School and the opportunity to support both great causes is all the encouragement we needed."
Suzanne Pinkett from St Teresa’s said:
"Alfie was such a happy little boy always full of fun and smiles. The children and team of St Teresa's School & Nursery supported Cyril's and Allan's bike ride with the children matching them lap for every mile around our school trundle track and play area.
This was a wonderful opportunity to raise funds and awareness of both meningitis and pancreatic cancer in a fun way and generate lots of lovely smiles that reminded us of Alfie."
All money raised will go towards Meningitis Now and Pancreatic Cancer UK in memory of their friend and cycling companion, Jamie Hughes.
