Charity duo stop off at Seaton on the fourth day of their ride from St Austell to Dover

Two Lions Club charity cyclists got a rip-roaring reception when they rode into Seaton on Friday.

Susan Saunders and Lion Maurice Allen stopped off at the resort on day four of their 12-day day trip from St Austell to Dover.

They were greeted by Seaton and District Lions Club President George Mabon who congratulated them on their journey so far and exchanged Lions Club banners

Susan Saunders, President of Adur East Lions Club, and Mr Allen aim to raise as much as possible for the Lions International Blood Research Appeal (LIBRA) - a charity which helps to tackle blood cancers.

They plan to cycle more than 420 miles in 12 days and hope to complete their challenge on Saturday (May 3).

All the money raised will benefit LIBRA which is the only charity in the world that solely raises funds for the Haematology Department at King’s College Hospital in London.

Funds ensure that the department is able to develop new and improved treatments for blood cancer patients across the UK
