Royal Air Force veteran Steve Moore put his stamina to the ultimate test in a charity challenge.

The 28-year-old who served in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now works at the Premier Inn at Preston Farm, is raising money for Hartlepool & District Hospice and The Great Ormond Street Hospital.

And he made sure he backed the two causes the hard way when he completed a mammoth 315 mile cycle ride.

Steve rode from the Premier Inn Hartlepool to Great Ormond Street Hospital in four days.

He was supported by a team whose van and diesel were supplied by local company Focus Cladding, and completed the challenge in four days, including a battle with heavy rain and windy conditions on the last part of the journey.

Steve said: “I could not have done all this without the support from Joan and Stan Sabey, Focus Cladding, Janice at the Hospice and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

“I would like to thank everyone who has sponsored me.”

James Daniel, managing director of Focus Cladding, said it was “a remarkable achievement”.

Hospice community fundraiser Janice Forbes said money is still coming in, and people can still sponsor Steve by visiting his JustGiving page HERE.
