NIGEL Watson cycled hundreds of miles to raise money for the hospice which cared for his dying father.
The Lindley man rode from Huddersfield to Belgium, raising £2,500 for Kirkwood Hospice.
His father Keith died of cancer at the hospice in January aged 75.
Nigel, 44, said: “They did so much to care for my dad and support my mum. I wanted to give something back.”
He presented a £2,500 cheque to Kirkwood Hospice. Nigel, who works as a joiner, cycled from the hospice to Belgian hostel Talbot House in September.
He said: “My parents used to work as wardens there. Talbot House is an historic place, it was used by soldiers as a religious retreat during the First World War.”
Nigel took five days to complete the 350-mile ride. He said: “I picked a route along B roads which weren’t congested. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”.”
