James will ride through Spalding as part of his quest to thank NHS heroes
Spalding will play a part in a cyclist's huge journey to thank the NHS for their ongoing work during the coronavirus crisis.
Tomorrow (Tuesday), James Clark, from Boston, will cycle 150 miles to hospitals in the area where he will stand outside and clap for two minutes - and in doing so will raise money for NHS Charities Together.
James will begin his journey at Boston Market Place, heading to Pilgrim Hospital, Louth's County Hospital, Lincoln County Hospital and Grantham & District Hospital before finishing back in Boston Market Place.
He plans to pass through Spalding around 8pm, starting on Winsover Road with a planned route through the town to Station Street, The Crescent, Spring Gardens, Spring Street, Haverfield Road, London Road, Double Street, Albion Street, West Elloe Avenue and ending on Pinchbeck Road.
The ride will be the furthest James has ever ridden before. He said: "I'm really excited! It's a big challenge as I've never biked this far before.
"I wanted to give something back to those who have committed the ultimate sacrifice by risking their lives to save ours."
