It was an emotional moment when a team of adventurous cyclists arrived at Land’s End after completing a challenge in memory of brain tumour victim Katy Holmes.
A group of 18 cyclists, including Katy’s dad David Holmes and fashion designer Jeff Banks, took part in the gruelling ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End and were joined by nine supporters for the venture.
The challenge was organised in aid of the Katy Holmes Trust in honour of the 10-year-old from Margaret Road, Penwortham, near Preston, who died in January last year.
Mum Paula Holmes and daughter Charley arrived at Land’s End before the cyclists to see them complete their journey.
Charley Holmes presented the cyclists, including dad David, with medals at the finish to celebrate their achievement.
Paula said: “It was an incredible moment when the team reached Land’s End and we are all so proud of them.
“The team spirit was amazing and it was lovely when Charley presented the cyclists with medals.
“Helen Clitheroe, who is the ambassador for the Katy Holmes Trust, also joined us in meeting the riders for the final leg of their journey as her husband Neil was one of the cyclists taking part.
“We also held an awards ceremony at the hotel that night and it including jokey awards too.
“We also presented Jeff Banks with a special award to thank him for all his help as we could never have done it without him.
“Charley and Scarlet were delighted to be reunited with Dave and we are very proud of him and everyone else.
“Dave says he feels fine and is ready to do it all again!
“The challenge has raised more than £60,000 for the Katy Holmes Trust so far and there is still money coming in so it is a fantastic achievement.”
