A St Neots beauty therapist managed to raise £500 for a charity that supports children with Down’s Syndrome after completing a 105-mile bike ride.

Sandra Booth, owner of The Crystal Rooms in Eaton Socon, took on a nine-hour bike ride from Cromer to St Neots, last month.

Sandra takes part in annual fund-raising challenges, and this year she chose to support Small Steps in Huntingdon.

“Although I am quite fit, this was only the fifth time that I had been out on the bike and I have never been in the saddle for that long so it was a big thing for me. I did ache the next day, but it wasn’t too bad.

“I would like to thank everyone who donated to this great cause, it is very much appreciated.”

Sandra hopes to do the London to Brighton charity ride next year.
