THE school business manager at Great Torrington School will be hopping on his bike to take part in a 220-mile ride.

Chris Ward is training to take part in the Plymouth Argyl Community Trust sponsored bike ride from Oxford to Home Park next month.

It is estimated the trip will take three-to-four days and will raise money for the Argyle Community Trust, Argyle Youth Academy and Prostate Cancer UK.

Chris said: “I am taking part in this challenge as the cause is close to my heart, as both my step father and father in law have been affected by Prostate Cancer and I had a scare last year”.

So far Chris has raised more than £595 towards the charities.
