A MOTORCYCLIST on a whistle stop tour of all 160 hospices around Great Britain dropped into Blackburn.

Jeff Birbeck embarked on the trip to raise money for his local hospice in Hertfordshire, Isabel Hospice and he popped into its East Lancashire counterpart on Park Lee Road.

He is attempting this challenge in just 10 days travelling as far north as Stromness in the Orkney Islands and south to Cornwall.

He is camping and staying with friends and supporters along the way and will collect signatures from every hospice he visits.
