Mike Davies is planning to cycle 1,400 miles to the most easterly,westerly,southerly and northerly points of mainland Britain

Colyton Grammar School’s head of chemistry has come up with an unusual formula for fundraising – cycling to the four ‘limiting points’ of mainland Britain.

Teacher Mike Davies sets off from Lands End on July 31 to travel to the most southerly, most easterly, most westerly and most northerly points – The Lizard, Lowestoft Ness, Dunnet Head (Scotland) and Ardnamurchan Peninsula (Scotland) respectively.

He is taking on the 1,400 mile challenge in aid of Cancer Research UK. He hopes to complete between 70 and 80 miles a day and return to his Colyton home on August 24.

Mike, 58, will be stopping for four days during the challenge to raise funds for Cancer Research in various cities.

He said he was taking on the challenge because he had lost some really good friends to cancer.

Mike is funding all his expenses so all the money collected will go to the cause.
