A group of friends got on their bikes – and clocked up nearly £1,500 for charity.

The six women rode 157 miles from Edinburgh to Seaton Sluice in just three days.

Those taking part in the Coast and Castles trip were: Alison Ward and Pat Higham, from Seaton Sluice; Diane Green, Pam Lloyd and her daughter Alex, from Whitley Bay, as well as Ann Morris, from Hebburn.

They raised funds for the Alzheimers Society and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Other causes included Lukeslifelonglabour.com, which was set up to help Luke Collins, who was diagnosed with a tumour on his optic nerve and has been undergoing treatment at Newcastle General Hospital.

The other charity benefitting from the ride was Josie’s Dragonfly Trust, which was set up by Josie Grove, from Corbridge, to help fellow teenage cancer patients.

Diane said: “It was hard-going, often up and down hills and into a strong wind but we felt really proud when we reached the finish line.”
