Spalding stages 'Tour of Anna's Hope' for brain tumour charity
Cyclists set out from Spalding and rode for nearly 60 miles in aid of a children's cancer charity.
The annual 1Life Charity Bike Ride saw 25 riders follow a route between Spalding, Boston and Long Sutton to start the late spring bank holiday week.
About £445 was raised for Anna's Hope, a charity helping children and young people diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Organiser Josh Wright, sales manager at Spalding's Castle Sports Complex where the ride started and ended, said: "It went really well and we raised more money this time than the Â£371 we made last year.
"It was really well-supported, with fruit, snacks and other refreshments for the cyclists at each stop.
"We had one member of staff , riders from local cycling clubs and members of the public who just wanted to join in and take part."
The riders were sent on their way by Carole Hughes, whose daughter Anna died from a brain tumour in October 2008 but whose name lives on through the charity.
Carole said: "Josh has been helping the charity since he was 13 and we're in awe of the work he has put in for us, especially with the bike ride.
"Anna's Hope is pioneering and we want children with a brain tumour to live a happy and fulfilled life - just like any other child."
