Pair raise pounds for charity with cycle around Norfolk
Two friends have helped raise just over �1,000 for a life-saving charity with a gruelling cycle challenge around Norfolk.
Mike Padfield, 36, from Sheringham and Matt Charlton, 34, from Buckland Rise in Eaton, Norwich, took part in the
200 mile cycle around Norfolk in a bid to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) in the eastern region.
They started their journey from Lifeboat Plain in Sheringham, on Saturday and finished on Sunday night .
Mr Padfield said; 'We raised just over �1,000 for the RNLI. We managed to avoid the rain and cover the 200 miles in 18 hours over two days.' He also offered thanks to James Richardson for help with the training, and all those who sponsored the pair.
