Dan Diggins, who is the son of one of The Space Centre trustee volunteers, and Stuart Robinson, whose wife manages the centre, were so inspired by the work they had seen their loved ones do, they took on the Ride London, raising £3,046 for the charity.

Their friends Martin Simkinson, Tim Shimwell and Dan Richardson, also joined them in the 100-mile cycle ride.

All money raised will go towards The Space Centre, in Ashton, which provides a multi-sensory environment for people with special needs.

Andrea Baker, fund-raiser at The Space Centre, said: “The team survived the course made so difficult by bad weather in good time and The Space Centre would like to thank them all for their efforts both before and on the day.”
