SHIPLEY gardener Anthony Maguire has cycled coast to coast to raise cash for Bradford Hospital’s Children’s Charity.

The 51-year-old, of Daleside Road, took to his bike and collected nearly £1,700 in sponsorship for his 140 mile journey from Whitehaven to the east coast.

"I did it at the end of May and it was three days of solid rain - every day was disgusting, to be honest, but it was worth it," said Mr Maguire.

This was his second charity ride and next year he plans to ride from Newcastle to Edinburgh.
