Committed cyclist Paul O’Shaughnessy is this week’s worthy We Can Do It T-shirt winner because he will pedal hundreds of miles in aid of a charity which supports people who have lost their sight.

Paul, 46, of Titchfield Park, will begin his journey in the saddle at HMS Victory on July 3.

He will make his way across the country and arrive in Liverpool just three days later.

In total, Paul, who is a chief petty officer at HMS Collingwood, in Fareham, will clock up a staggering 300 miles.

As part of his feat Paul is aiming to raise as much money as he can for The Royal National Institute of Blind People.

He wants to help out the UK charity because his mum Marie, who lives in Liverpool, recently lost her sight.

Paul says: ‘It’s going to be a challenge - especially because I’m not getting any younger.

‘But I think I can do it because I’ve trained hard.’

Paul’s colleague, Lieutenant Tim Johnson, 32, will also be joining him for the cycle challenge.

Tim’s choice of charity is Cancer Research UK because his fiancee’s mum, Wendy Pawsey, lost her battle with the disease last year.

The pair are asking people if they could donate a support van to accompany them on the trip.
