Staff from a Golders Green care home showed their mettle by taking on a freezing cold 63 mile cycle ride across London to raise money for charity.

Barchester's Magnolia Court staff peddled for MacMillan Cancer Support and Barchester Healthcare’s own Charitable Foundation on Sunday raising £3,000.

On November 28 the team of workers, led by regional director Wayne Hughes, set off at 6.30am from Magnolia House in Hampstead and cycled on to 10 care homes in Islington, Wembley, Bushey, Chalfont St Peter, Harrow, Chorleywood and Southgate where they finished at 5.30pm.

They stopped at each home where they were greeted by well wishers who cheered them on.

Magnolia Court raised money for the two charities with a raffle and activities in its Granville Road care home and riders joined by members of the community who braved the cold to lend their support.
