A MUM has reached her target of raising £1,000 by cycling 172-miles across five counties in aid of a cancer charity.

Rosie Walker-Glenn, whose son Deiter(11) is now in remission after 172 weeks of treatment for leukaemia, was joined on the two-day ride by her dad Derek Pallett.

Rosie said: “The first day we did about 110 miles and it was head wind and a lot of it was uphill, so it was quite hard, but the second day was much easier.

“At the time it was hard going but looking back we had a good time doing it .

“Dad was a trooper and we kept each other going.

“There were no major hiccups and the only problem was a sore bum!”

The riders were joined by a couple of Deiter’s friends on the last leg from Gosberton, and greeted by family and friends at The Lincoln Arms pub, where a barbecue, cake stall and tombola boosted the fundraising for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.

Derek said: “I can’t thank everybody enough for the support given to this worthy cause.”
