Fenland friends to cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats for charities
TWO best friends will cycle the length of the country for two charities close to their hearts.
Gary Waldock-Goude and Mark Stevens, both of March, will cycle more than 1,000 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats in aid of Cancer Research UK and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
They have already raised more than �2,400 and have a target of �5,000.
Mr Waldock-Goude’s aunt Teresa Waldock lost her battle from complications caused by Multiple Sclerosis in 2006. His mother Elaine and Mr Stevens’ mother Sue have also suffered from breast cancer.
Mr Waldock-Goude said: “Fortunately they won their battles, but all the reasons together have given us the drive and determination to raise awareness and funding for these great charities.”

The trip will take about two weeks to complete and the friends hope to cover between 75-95 miles each day.
Mr Waldock-Goude said: “Nine months ago we had both only ever cycled to the local shop but we have been training hard for our challenge.
