150 miles ridden for a farmers aid charity
CYCLIST Peter Hardy has completed a ride of 150 miles in two days to help raise awareness of and money for the Farming Community Network (FCN).
The national charity supports farmers experiencing hardship.
The ride was part of FCN’s Big 25, a celebration of the charity’s 25th anniversary.
Peter, FCN regional director for the Midlands, covered about 25 miles in each of the Midlands counties he is responsible for – Shropshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and ending at Melton Livestock Market.
He said: “Farmers are key workers who have helped keep the country running.
“Covid-19 has reminded the nation that we rely on our farmers to put food on the table.
“By cycling across the Midlands as part of FCN’s Big 25, I hope to raise awareness of the many ways in which FCN supports farming communites during challenging times.”
