A BARBER and his friends have risen over £120,000 for charity by doing a three-day cycling challenge.

On September 27, all 27 riders including Immy Hussain from Great Harwood rode from St.George's Road in Bolton to Trafalgar Square in London over three days to raise money for the clean water project in Tanzania.

Overall, they raised £121,393.79 and covered 250 miles with breaks every 30 miles.

Mr Hussain said: "All of the monies are a 100% donation policy, for the clean water project for the less fortunate in Tanzania for water wells , from the DWT Dabbagh welfare trust.

"We have been fortunate to have our spiritual teacher sheikh Ahmad Dabbagh to help us organise such good work , and we also spent money on getting our bicycles, cycle clothing, food, accessories and staying over costs from our own money.

"Not one penny has been spent on us, all the donations have strictly gone towards the charity work."

Cyclists from all over the country joined in the ride and are extremely proud of the money they have raised.

They were in groups of six to follow the rule of six guidelines,
