Coxbank residents Monique and David passed through Audlem this morning on their cycling marathon from Land's End to John O’ Groats to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Members of Audlem "5A" Drama Group are seen here presenting a cheque of £500.00 to Monique and Dave as a donation for the Trust. The money was raised from the nightly Raffle during the Panto performances in January.
The intrepid cyclists met up with members of Audlem Cycling Club too as they headed off northwards to Kendal in Cumbria after an overnight break at home in Coxbank.
