Well-known TV and film star Andrew Lincoln completed a three-day ride to raise cash for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
Lincoln, who is best known for his roles in hit TV series The Walking Dead and Love Actually, took part in the Ride For Precious Lives after visiting Charlton Farm in Wraxall earlier this year.
More than 70 cyclists set off from Little Harbour hospice in St Austell on Friday and travelled to CHSW's Little Bridge House in Devon, before finishing at Charlton Farm on Sunday.
After crossing the finish line, Andrew said: "It was one of the most, humbling, hilarious and challenging three days I've had the privilege of being involved in.
"Children's Hospice South West is run by extraordinary people, for remarkable families and supported by the most open-hearted of people. I loved every second of it."
