A group of friends are asking for donations of scrap bicycles to create a unique mode of transport for a coast-to-coast challenge in aid of East Lancashire Hospice.

Alex Booth, Alex Bury and Tom Stride need 10 unwanted bikes to turn them into a bespoke cycle for the journey.

They have previously created a three and four-seater machine but hope to create something bigger and better for their latest challenge in aid of the Blackburn hospice.

Anyone with spare bikes can contact the hospice on 01254 733 400.
