Help for Heroes support

A CHARITY collection held in Buxton on Saturday raised over £700 for Help for Heroes.

Buxton man Ian Hulme, who was joined by members of the Mercian regiment for the collection, would like to thank everyone who made a donation.

In September, Ian, and Iain Banks, from Sheen, will take part in a four-day 450km bike ride over the French Alps to raise funds for the charity.

They will climb some of the highest roads in Europe that feature in the Tour De France when they take on the Piste 2 Plage Challenge.

To support the pair’s fundraising efforts go to or where you can make a donation.
