A VOLUNTEER at a multiple sclerosis therapy centre in Trafford Park has been set a challenge to raise funds for charity.

Rick Halsall is doing a virtual bike ride 55 minutes each day for 55 days from Southport to Paris and he is being joined by longtime friend Jim and his daughter Steph who has taken the challenge international by cycling in South Korea, where she now lives.

So far, he has raised more than £90k for various challenges and he has been awarded a British Empire Medal and he continues to give back to his community by volunteering as a Trustee for TMSTC (NW)

Rick said: “Due to lockdown it’s become very entertaining sharing photos where we finish every day we are doing approximately 20 to 25 km per day so we have plotted our route out.

“My daughter is sharing her pictures of South Korea daily.”
