Andy Devaynes cycles Lands End to John O’Groats for the SPF

Andy Devaynes cycles Lands End to John O’Groats for the SPF

Andy Devaynes from St Helens gave himself an immense challenge when he set off from Lands End to John O’Groats on 20th May.  Former amateur rugby league player Andy completed the 930 mile route over seven days raising funds and awareness for the Steve Prescott Foundation on the way. He has already raised over £1000 in the process.

Andrew says, ‘I am 34 years old, married with two daughters and currently studying towards a PhD. I played rugby league for Clockface Miners ARLFC for 10 years and represented Edge Hill University in the Challenge Cup in 2011. After calling time on playing rugby I took up cycling and ride natural trails in the Lake District, Peak District and surrounding areas most weekends. I regularly cycle to Edge Hill University taking my annual mileage to around 4000 miles each year. Steve’s fundraising was an inspiration and has inspired me to undertake my own challenges, so this year I am running the Manchester marathon and cycling LEJOG unsupported in 7 days.’
