A father and daughter team have helped raise £1,000 for charity by taking part in a challenging bike ride.

South Bucks Hospice Volunteer Michael Cole and his daughter Stephanie Evans embarked on a 50-mile bike ride to raise money for the charity.

The RideLondon-Surrey 46 saw thousands of cyclist’s cycle from the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in east London and pedal through surrey until finishing between Buckingham Palace and Trafalgar Square.

The South Bucks Hospice Charity provide support for people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Community Fundraiser at the Hospice, Ben O’Keefe, said: “We are very grateful and were really impressed with the effort put in by Stephanie and Michael.

“The money they have raised will be of huge help to our patients living with life-threatening, aggressive or terminal illness.”

Michael’s role as Volunteer Coordinator is voluntary and he and his daughter were pleased that they managed to raise their £1000 goal.

He said: “It was a brilliant day made even better by having Stephanie with me.

“We completed the ride in under three hours and reached our fundraising target for the hospice.

“We both enjoyed the atmosphere as there were thousands of cyclists and we had a lot of fun cycling together.”
