Woodbury care home worker completes charity ride
A man who works for Stallcombe House in Woodbury has completed a charity bike ride from John O’Groats to Lands End
A SUPPORT worker from a Woodbury care home is putting his feet up after taking part in a marathon bike ride in aid of charity.
Phil Webb, who works at Stallcombe House, in Sanctuary Lane, cycled from John O’Groats to Lands End recently.
Mr Webb was part of a four-man team who were all riding for various charities.
Reflecting on the trip, he said: “The views from Glen Coe were fantastic and I met so many interesting people along the way.
“I travelled with my own tent and equipment in panniers and some camp-sites let me stay free of charge when they discovered for whom I was raising funds.”
Mr Webb, who raised �2.5000 for Stallcombe residents, was met at Lands End by his wife, Natalie, as well as sons, Kyle and Lewis, together with other supporters and friends.
