Local Coxbank residents Monique and David are cycling from Lands End to John O’ Groats to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust. They say:

Monique & David - April 2012

We will be setting out on April 5th 2012, averaging 110 miles a day, cycling from Lands End to John O' Groats, covering nearly 900 miles in 8 days.
