CHEADLE cyclist Jason Proctor has raised over £215 for Douglas Macmillan Hospice's Bike Ride on Sunday, May 18.

Jason is an avid cyclist and has been training for weeks for the event at the Michelin Athletics Centre, and is very excited about taking on the 50 mile Nantwich route.

His uncle Ian Porter was cared for the by the Hospice two years ago, and Jason is delighted to have smashed his original fundraising target of £100.

Jason said: "I am a very keen cyclist and train a couple of times a week as well as doing spinning.

"So many local people are cared for by Dougie Mac so it's nice to give something back.

"I am doing the Bike Ride for the first time this year but hoping to do the 110 mile Llangollen route next year."

Liz Clarke, head of fund-raising added: "We would like to thank Jason for his tremendous support and for raising much needed funds for the Hospice.

"The Bike Ride always attracts the cream of the cycling crop and this year is proving no different.

"All monies raised will go towards patient care for people of North Staffordshire facing life limiting illnesses."

Supporters can still register for the Bike Ride at www.dougiemacevents.co.uk
