Cyclists took part in a sponsored bike ride around Preston’s Guild Wheel in memory of tragic schoolboy Joshua Unsworth.

More than 100 riders cycled the 21-mile Guild Wheel in support of the JWU Foundation, set up in Joshua Unsworth’s memory.

The youngest entrants were Mathew Unsworth, seven, Lewis Clark, and Harry Brown and the eldest Eileen Forshaw, Derek Hayhurst and Joan and Bill Winslow. Charity co-founder Gary Unsworth said: “It was a tremendous day, everybody had fun.”

Last year 15-year-old Joshua was found dead behind his family home in Goosnargh, near Preston,

His family and friends organised a charity music festival to mark what would have been his 16th birthday and to help others.

Following the successful event, the foundation, which aims to help young people gain confidence and skills, was founded.
