Peter Bryant, who has taken part in numerous cycling events for charity, raised the money by running a stall at Asda, Wisbech.

With the help of his wife and a few friends, £857.88 was put in the collection buckets whilst a further £382 came from merchandise sales.

The total, of £1,240.38, beats his previous best efforts from 2013.

He said: “I am very pleased with the outcome and would like to thank everyone who donated or brought something from our stall.”
