A keen cyclist from Preston will set off on a 196 mile bike ride today in aid of the Space Centre.

Jordan Dashti, who works at Peter Jackson jewellers, will cycle to all five stores owned by Peter.

Each of his five jewellery stores in the North West and the head quarters in Preston have selected a charity to champion and each team has been given £500 to turn into as much money as they possibly can within a set time frame.

The team that raises the most money by the end of July will have their figure matched by Peter.

The team at the headquarters has chosen Space as its charity of the year.

Jordan said: “I am really looking forward to taking on this challenge and have been training extremely hard.

“The Space Centre is an amazing charity and as part of Team HQ we are going all out to raise as much as possible and hope that people will donate towards this very worthwhile charity.

“We are working towards helping raise much needed funds towards a target of £125,000 to complete another room in the Space portfolio. 
“There are so many families who benefit from the centre and the facilities are utilised by families from miles around.”

The Preston team has been working hard to raise as much money as possible. They have organised a race night and a car boot sale to help with the fundraising.
