A councillor from Brampton is aiming to cycle more than 200 miles to raise money for the homeless.
John Morris, 64, a Huntingdonshire District Councillor, is aiming to set off on Friday, August 27 to cycle from Lincoln to London.
He aims to raise at least £500 for the charity Friends of The Connection which supports the great work of The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields with helping rough sleepers turn their lives around.
John will join 30 other cyclists on the Queen Eleanor charity cycle ride over the bank holiday weekend.
John said: “Having worked in housing for many decades I never cease to be amazed by the fabulous work that homeless charities do to support street homeless, many of whom have complex needs.
