A church officer from Norfolk is getting on his bike to cycle 200 miles in just 24 hours to raise money for charity.
Julian Bryant, of Christian Aid, is an ordinand at St Edmund’s Taverham.
He is hoping to raise vital funds for people impacted by Covid in countries such as India.
He began his journey at the crack of dawn today (Sunday, June 13) and is cycling from Great Yarmouth to Diss, Thetford to King’s Lynn, Wells, Sheringham, Cromer, and back to Yarmouth.
He has trained for six months and said it would all be worth it to support Christian Aid’s coronavirus appeal.
