A cyclist from High Wycombe who has raised more than £100,000 for charity after his mother died from motor neurone disease is hoping to break two world records and collect more donations.

Entrepreneur Steven Smith wants to take his fundraising total to £160,000 with a ‘Rave and Ride’ cycling and DJ event at Stoke Park, Stoke Poges, in May for the MND Association.

At least 1,000 people are expected to take part, with Mr Smith hoping to see more support as they bid to collect money and break world records for the amount of people involved.

His charity bid started after the death of his mum, Genifer.

He said: "I will not stop until a cure is found for MND. That is my motivation and that is what keeps me going.

"Myself and my family cared for my mum and MND took her life in 18 months. She was my best friend.

“If I could fund a scientist who helps to find the cure that would be amazing."

Mr Smith has already raised £115,000 for the MND Association from previous Rave and Rides, as well as other fundraising adventures, including several London Marathons and the gruelling L’Etape du Tour cycle race.

Additional funds will help the association to fund the work of two PhD students, based at its MND Care and Research Centre at Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital.
