Ben Reinhardt, from Crewe, has spent May this year cycling 300 miles – the equivalent distance from London to Paris – to raise funds for a cancer charity.

He is raising money for ‘Blood Cancer UK’, a community dedicated to beating blood cancer through research.

Ben has ridden circular routes on his bicycle from his home. The furthest point he reached was Cuddington and he has also passed through Haslington, Church Minshull, Sandbach, Alsager, Hassall Green, Tarporley, Wybunbury, Marbury and Audlem.

Over 60 years, Blood Cancer UK have invested more than £500 million in blood cancer research, which has led to a long line of breakthroughs that have improved treatments and saved lives.

Ben, who is also a committee member of Blood Cancer UK (South Cheshire Branch), said: “As a result of lockdown my charity like all others has suffered from lack of fund-raising opportunities. So, when the chance came to raise vital funds for Blood Cancer UK, I took it deciding to put my effort into this bike ride for such a worthy cause. A big thank you to all of those who have donated.”
