Two parents are doing gruelling charity challenges on the same day to raise funds for a pre-school.

On July 27, Nestle Purina worker Scott Summers, of Wisbech, will take part in the second annual Circuit of the Fens, a 125 mile cycle race around Fenland.

While he is pedalling furiously, family friend Sam Rose, of Wisbech, will be scaling Ben Nevis.

The pair hope to raise funds to pay for new toys and books for Trinity Methodist Pre-School in Wisbech, where Scott’s son Archie and Sam’s daughter Maisie are pupils.

Scott’s wife Kim Summers said: “After a bad sporting injury, Scott has had an ACL reconstruction and eight operations so it will be quite a challenge.

“The money he and Sam raises will go on buying equipment for the school.”

Sponsorship forms are available from Trinity Methodist Pre-School, which is open from 9am - noon Mondays to Fridays. For more information about the pre-school go to www.trinitymethodistpreschool.com or e-mail trinitympreschool@hotmail.com

If we are to encourage cyclists to use the roads, we need to make the roads safer and more welcoming. Much of this can be achieved by reducing the speed of traffic. Where there are 20mph limits in place, there is no excuse for cyclists to use pavements.
