A Hatfield man who is blind and has cerebral palsy raised hundreds after cycling 10 miles to St Albans and back again.

Richard Lord, 32, raised £230 for the charity Sense after cycling from his home in Hatfield to St Albans and the back again on Saturday, August 4.

Richard, who enjoys cycling on his tandem bike, was encouraged to take up the challenge by his support workers Howard Seymour and Jay Jeffery, from the organisation ‘Partners in Support.’

One person steered Richard’s two-seater tandem bike, while the other rode alongside him.

Howard said: “Richard was brilliant and we are so proud of him for completing this challenge to raise money for Sense.

“We are planning a 15-mile ride next year as Richard achieved this so easily.”
