A Melton man raised £400 to help fellow asthma sufferers by cycling 100 miles around London past some of its iconic landmarks.

Wayne Hazeldine, of Scalford Road, took part in the annual Prudential Ride London event, completing the challenge in five hours and 15 minutes.

Proceeds from his efforts will go to Asthma UK, which supports those who suffer from the condition, because he has had it since the age of 17 and many of his relatives are also sufferers.

Wayne said: “The ride was fantastic, taking in some major sites such as the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, the famous Surrey Hills, Leith Hill and Box Hill and then heading back along the embankment past Downing Street and finishing on The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

“I would like to thank all of those who have sponsored me for this worthy charity and to let other people who haven’t had a chance, or forgotten, that my Just Giving page is still active to donate through if they wish.”
