John O’Groats to Land’s Ends – Completed

Hub Cycle FinishWell done to Jonathan Booth on completing his fourteen day cycle ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End. Jon completed his challenge on Thursday 29th September.

Jon has been diagnosed with Stomach and Liver Cancer, but wanted to complete the challenge and, while doing so, raise funds for Western Park Hospital. So far, he has managed to raise over seven thousand pounds. Please visit his JustGiving page to see how well he’s done – and, of course, to donate.

In Jon’s own words, as he finished the challenge: ‘Mission accomplished. I’m speechless got so many emotions going off right now. Proper welling up on the last descent into landsend. It’s amazing what the human body can do with a sprinkle of determination and positivity. Just want to thank everyone for your support and kind words’
