TWO friends cycled round Fenland to raise money for soldiers wounded whilst on duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Jamie Bish, 18, and Gareth Usher, 17, hoped to have raised £400 for Help for Heroes in a sponsored bike ride after deciding they wanted to do something for charity.

The two school friends took just over three hours to complete the 35 mile round tour from Neale Wade Community College, travelling through Wimblington, Doddington, Benwick, Whittlesey, Eastrea, and HMP Whitemoor.
