A VICAR is in the middle of a charity fundraising cycle ride across the length of Britain.

Rev Jonathan Gordon set off from Lands End in Cornwall on Tuesday last week and is due to arrive in John o’Groats in Scotland on Wednesday, July 20.

The St Mary’s Church vicar is completing the journey from the UK’s most southern to most northern point for South African children’s charity Phakamisa.

Speaking to the Gazette from his bicycle on Monday, the Northchurch vicar said: “The weather has been very kind to me. It is hot and sticky today, but still cycle-able.”
