Two charity cyclists have smashed their separate September challenges, raising hundreds of pounds for charities close to their hearts.

Valerie Nimmo surpassed her 300-mile goal during a trip to Arran last Saturday and has so far completed 320 miles as she raises money for Cancer Research UK, while David Armour has doubled his 250-mile target, cycling more than 500 miles and raising £625 in sponsorship for Diabetes UK.

A member of Cancer Research UK’s Kintyre fundraising committee, Valerie has so far received more than £600 in online sponsorship and at least £205 in cash but the final total has still to be revealed as there is more money to come in from sponsor forms handed out by her fellow committee members.
