Neil Henderson's Charity Cycle

Neil BikingAnnan volunteer Neil Henderson recently completed a charity cycle in aid of Food Train and Food Train Friends.  On Sunday 19th May Neil set off from his home town in Annan and travelled through Longtown up  through Moffat before climbing the Devil's Beef Tub into the Borders and through Lanarkshire into Biggar where he stopped for lunch.  Neil then cycled down through Johnstonebridge into Gretna and back to Annan via Longtown - a total of 150 miles were completed.  Neil had arranged sponsorship for this event via a guess his time for the official 'Down to Longtown' cycle (a total of 125 miles) which he completed in 9 hours and 33 minutes.  There were 2 sponsors who guessed closest at 9 hours 35 minutes, Susan Dunion won a bottle of champagne and Ann Stevens won the bottle of wine.  Neil raised a wonderful amount of £860 for the charity.  Food Train would like to thank Neil for his hard work and continued commitment to Food Train and Food Train Friends.

Well Done Neil.
