Two Buxton men have raised over £2,800 for charity after cycling from John O’Groats to Land’s End.

James Wright and Stewart Welburn spent 12 days cycling the 950 miles to raise money for a charity close to both of their hearts.

James lost his dad to cancer in 2003 and has wanted to support the charity ever since.

Both he and Stewart took up cycling at the same time and decided to take on a cycling challenge for charity.
