Marcus Farnfield, Haileybury’s Head Boy for 2008/09, and a leaver from last year, Jack Hobbs, today completed their epic 1000-mile cycle from John O’ Groats to Land’s End in aid of charity.
They undertook the challenge of riding down the United Kingdom on road bikes, an end-to-end trip that started on 27 July and ended in the Cornish sunshine today.
Marcus did the ride for St Elizabeth’s Centre in Much Hadham, which is raising money for a new day room for its residents, while Jack hopes to raise £2,000 for Grove House Hospice.
St Elizabeth’s is a national Centre specialising in the fields of epilepsy, neurological disorders and associated complex medical conditions. It also accepts children within the autistic spectrum and is one of only two national epilepsy centres offering services to all age groups with learning disabilities.
Grove House provides free specialist care and support to people in St Albans, Harpenden and Dacorum whose lives are affected by cancer or another life-threatening illnesses.

Well done to both of them!
