Burnham cyclist raises £3,000 by pedaling from Land's End to Hinkley

A Burnham-On-Sea man has helped to raise more than £3,000 for charity by cycling from Land's End to Hinkley Point.

Andy Brewer, right, who works at the power station, took part in the 182 mile ride over the weekend to raise cash for a charity that helps children with learning difficulties.

"It went really well and I'd like to thank everyone who kindly sponsored the charity cycle ride," he told

"There were 13 riders and a similar number of supporters and we set off from Land's End last Friday morning and cycled to Bude, where we stayed overnight."

"On Saturday we cycled from Bude and all arrived safely at Hinkley Point later in the day - a total distance of 182 miles."

Andy added: "We expect to have raised in excess of £3,000 for the Taunton Opportunity Group for pre-school children with special needs and all of your sponsorship money will go to the charity. All expenses are were covered by those taking part, Magnox and AM Sensors."

David Hancock, TOG's representative, said: "We cannot thank the cyclists enough." Anyone would like to make a donation can contact
