Five cyclists have raised enough money to provide 10 disabled people with a new wheelchair.

Paul Carter, David Ford, Judith Winter, John Miles and John White from Nailea Baptist Church cycled 110 miles from Land’s End to Plymouth Hoe to raise money for Nailsea Uganda Water Project and Motivation.

The team has presented £1,375 to Motivation, which sends low-cost wheelchairs to disabled people all over the world and runs training courses to teach them essential wheelchair skills.

The rest of the money will be donated to Nailsea Uganda Water Project which was set up in 2012 to provide six villages with clean water.
