St Ives cyclist India challenge
A FORMER St Ivo School pupil is �preparing to cycle 250 miles across India to raise hundreds pounds for sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis.
Thomas Dockerill, 21, will be braving 30 degree heat as he attempts to make the 10-day bike trek from Delhi through Ranthambore National Park before finishing at the Taj Mahal.
But even before he steps on Eastern soil, he has a mammoth task ahead of him as he must raise �2,800 for the MS Trust before his trip in November.
Thomas, who lives in Blackhill Road, St Ives, with parents Jane and Richard, and brother Luke, 22, is hoping to organise a string of events to help him reach his target, including a football tournament and raffles.
“Multiple Sclerosis is something which has affected my family. It means quite a lot to my family. I really wanted to achieve something. The �2,800 includes the cost of the flights. I have had to pay �300 to register, which I have done. The rest will go to the charity.” The challenge will see him cycle 50 miles a day.
