Peter Langford completed his third charity cycle ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats in September, raising 20,000GBP in the process. Peter, who attended Abbotsholme between 1946 and 1951, set out from the famous Cornish landmark to fundraise for Medicine Sans Frontier and two local charities. His previous two rides raised a whopping 38,000GBP for charity.
