A GROUP of cyclists covered 75 miles at a Christmas fayre to raise money for charity.

Seven cyclists raised over £140 for the 3Klimbs 4Kids (3K4K) challenge by riding exercise bikes at the Bishop’s Waltham Christmas fayre.

The 3K4K challenge hopes to raise £50,000 for cancer charities the Piam Brown Ward and Leukaemia Busters.

The cyclists were raising awareness of their sponsored challenge which will culminate in 10 cyclists setting off from Bishop’s Waltham on a 1,400-mile bike ride in July.

The team will cover the three peaks during the ride, scaling Snowdon, Scaffell Pike and Ben Nevis in just 16 days.

Team member Darren Simmonds said: ‘I’m proud to be part of this challenge and have been overwhelmed by the support from everyone who came along, chatted to us and dug deep to donate. Every penny we raise helps two worthwhile charities.’

The group will be raising money by packing bags at Budgens supermarket in Bishop’s Waltham between 10am and 4pm on Saturday, December 22.
