The managing director of Cornwall Ferries and the King Harry Ferry is swapping boats for a bike during September as he tackles John o’ Groats to Land’s End.
Tim Light and his brother, Bill, will cycle the 1030 miles from the tip of Scotland to the end of Britain, via as many ferries as they can use.
Between them hope to raise £4k for charity.
Tim Light said: “My brother and I are serious non-cyclists so this is going to be an interesting trip!
“We are cycling unsupported and where possible staying at fire stations on the way down.
“But, with ferries being a big part of my life I wanted to add a twist to the trip and try and take in as many different ones on the way down.”
The brothers plan to take 16 days to make the trip to fundraise for the Fire Brigade Benevolent Fund and the Kamuzanda school and village clinic in Uganda, which is part of the Pearl of Africa Child Care Ltd.
All monies raised for the Kamuzunda School and Clinic will be taken in person to the village by Bud Byass, wife of Cornwall Ferries’ chairman, ensuring that 100% of any donation made goes directly to the charity.
