PE teacher Cameron Keast wants to repay the hospice that cared for his grandma – so he’s cycling the length of Britain to raise money for it.
Ena Beveridge was looked after by Marie Curie Cancer Care before she died from bowel cancer in Edinburgh three years ago. She was 84.
Cameron, who works at Ashlyns School in Chesham Road, Berkhamsted, said: “She was an amazing person – very young-at-heart and independent.”
Cameron, 25, set off from Land’s End in Cornwall on Saturday, en-route for Scotland’s John O’ Groats.
He said: “This seemed like a fairly big challenge and the route is going to be 1,000-plus miles, so I thought that was a pretty worthy way to raise sponsorship.”
He began cycling after being forced to leave Berkhamsted Town Football Club – and the sport – due to an ankle injury.
He now cycles between his school and his home in The Holt, Adeyfield, each working day during term-time.
