Prison officers from Lancaster Farms took part in the Way of the Roses cycle ride for charity.

The 170 mile route, which was completed in three days, was to raise money for the charity Action Duchenne.

Richard Foster, Tom Gallagher, Bryan Hardman, Adam Carway, Jason Wicks and Steve Donnell, all prison officers at Lancaster Farms, cycled the route with a support van supplied by James Griffiths auto services from White Lund Industrial Estate.

The van was driven by the seventh member of the team, Sharron Greenhalgh who is also a prison officer at Lancaster Farms.

Sharron has been a fantastic support and helped plan much of the details of the trip.

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is a condition that affects the muscles causing muscle weakness.

This condition is particularly close to one of the cyclist’s hearts and his colleagues wanted to support this charity and also their colleague.

The condition unfortunately affects one of their children.

Family, friends and colleagues celebrate their return by greeting them at the Midland hotel in Morecambe at the end of the route.
