Residents of Chipstead Lake care home in Kent are to benefit from over £800 of fundraising money following an inspiring act of charity from a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) widower.
70-year-old Peter Hayes is cycling 100 miles through London and Surrey on Saturday along the route of the London 2012 Olympic road cycling races.
Mr Hayes’ life wife lived with MS, a condition that affects many of the residents at the home.
Mr Hayes said: “Multiple Sclerosis has had a great impact on my life as a carer, so the Ride London event will be a tough but satisfying challenge.”
Prudential RideLondon is the largest festival of cycling in the world, with more than 95,000 participants expected to cycle more than three million miles across this weekend.
The festival is disability-friendly, with recumbent bicycles accommodated this year for the first time, along with hand cycles and tandems.
