A team of 13 workmates, family and friends completed a 42-mile cycle ride from Skegness to Sleaford on Saturday and raised more than £2,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital - double their original target.

The ride was organised by Charlotte Walton-Gollop of Sleaford after the hospital cared for her half-cousin Ollie Thacker when diagnosed with a brain tumour aged three.

They completed the ride in four hours and she is looking to do something bigger next year.
