A Stewartby mother-of-two joined popular TV presenter and author Fern Britton on an epic 1,106 mile cycle ride from John O’Groats to Lands End.

Sonia Ping, 56 – pictured above with Fern – was helping raise money for Challenge 57 in aid of Genesis Research Trust, which is investigating miscarriage in pregnancy.

Fern is the Trust’s patron.

Sonia said: “She’s wonderful company and the most amazing person. She does so much for the charity and I don’t think she gets enough recognition.”
The 24-strong team took 19 days to cover the journey and raised more than £150,000 for the Trust. They were met at Lands End by its chairman, Professor Robert Winston.
