Mike Hatchard – Charity Cycle Ride from John O’Groats to Lands End – Update

In an earlier news item we featured the charity bike ride being undertaken by Mike Hatchard from John ‘O Groats to Lands End towing a piano! ( Mike entertained us in October last year with a witty and accomplished one-man musical show (

He writes to tell us he has now completed his journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats (via Kent) and managed to tow his electric piano with him all the way. During the journey he has performed over fifty concerts in a variety of venues ranging from theatres to pubs, churches to village halls, bookshops to art galleries, village greens to beaches and even a wineshop.

As a result of his self-described “slightly insane” venture so far about seven thousand pounds has been raised for BBC Children in Need – and donations are still coming in.
