Sponsored cycle: Danny McStravock would once again like to thank everyone for your support for my recent Sponsored cycle. The generosity of people once again was fantastic and with that sort of support even the biggest challenges don’t seem as daunting. ‘On Wednesday last I presented a cheque for £2562 to Emily Ferson of the Children’s Hospice.
