Hospice supporter Kevin Scot is gearing up for a near-1,000 mile cycle journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats.

Kevin, a teacher at Hereford Cathedral School, will set off at the weekend and hopes to reach the northern tip of Scotland within 12 days. "I’ve completed the St Michael’s Hospice Wheelie Big Cycle for a number of years," he says, "But this year I decided to go the extra mile - 971 miles to be exact! I’ve always had an affinity with the Hospice movement. Years ago, as a teenager in Blackpool, I was part of a choir that went to sing in a Hospice on the Fylde Coast. This was before the work of Hospices was widely known, and I found it a profoundly moving experience."

Kevin hopes to raise £1250 for the Hospice. If you would like to sponsor him you can do so through his
