Two fundraisers from St Neots will be “shaking their collection tins” on the town’s Market Square on Saturday, from 10am till 4pm.

Natasha Oliver and Pippa Ellis, from Beacon Wealth Management, are participating in the Women -v- Cancer 100km London Night Ride on May 26.

The female-only cycling event starts at 9.30pm from Royal Windsor Racecourse, and the route will take them on a circuit through London past famous landmarks including Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and then back to Windsor. They are expecting it to take them about five-and-a-half hours.

They will also be holding a raffle to raise additional funds and prizes include a round of golf at St Neots Golf Club, Days of Buckden butchers vouchers, tea and cake for two at Olivers, in St Neots, a voucher for Bohemia, a blow dry at the Salon on The Green at Buckden and a Shakie Jakes, Citrus Rooms and Honeycomb Photography vouchers.

Natasha said: "I have not cycled for years, and only got my bike in January. This is a tough challenge, but for a very worthy cause and myself and Pippa hope to raise as much money as we can and hope people will be kind enough to support us."
