A Gaddesby man has helped raise thousands of pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust by completing a 24-hour non-stop indoor cycle challenge.

Ed Tarelli, who leads part of E.ON’s customer operations, took on the challenge with work colleagues who also volunteered to take to the saddle.

Mr Tarelli said: “Between us we rode four bikes for 24 hours covering 1,300 miles. The trust does some vital work and I’m thrilled that with the sponsorship raised by our 24-hour bike ride, the total raised and donated by E.ON and its employees since July 2014 has been pushed to £200,000.”

Mr Tarelli, who took on his personal challenge on Thursday/Friday, was joined for a couple of hours by ex Leicester Tigers and England rugby star Austin Healey, formerly of Gaddesby and now of Langham.
