FOUR cyclists crossed the 230-mile Trans Pennine Trail and raised more than £2,000 for Barnsley Hospice.

The four cyclists, all in their 30s, are Richard Leaver, James Boothroyd, Tim Bertram and Steven Horne. The three-day ride was a fundraiser for the hospice that cared for James's sister.


Richard said the route started at Hornsea and finished with a champagne reception in Southport.

The group had printed shirts - made to publicise their cause - and took collection buckets along the way.

"The first stage alone was 92 miles - I think my legs are just recovering," said Richard.
