over £2,000 has been raised for The Christie Hospital through a 911 mile cycle challenge from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Joe Wood, from New Mills, and his friend Will Beasley faced torrential rain, the hottest October since records began, and even the remnants of a hurricane, as they completed the ride in 14 days.

Joe said they were thrilled to have raised over double their target. “We are immensely grateful to all the generous people who supported us in this challenge.”

They took on the challenge to mark the completion of part of their training and have now taken up full-time posts as Radiotherapy Physicists at The Christie.
