Brian gets on his bike for ‘Help for Heroes’

A TRAIN driver is hitting a different sort of track in a mammoth 92-mile charity bike ride in aid of Help for Heroes.

Brian Skeet, who works for National Express East Anglia, along with five friends from his local caravan club, will be cycling along a picturesque route from Kings Lynn in Norfolk, through Ely, Fordham, Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow, before finishing their epic bike ride in High Ongar.

Mr Skeet, from Witham, said: “Help for Heroes is a charity which is close to our hearts. One can’t help but be moved by the events affecting the brave soldiers of our local barracks.

“That’s why this year Help for Heroes is our chosen charity.”
