A teacher is to ride his bike from Geneva to London in an attempt to raise money for motor neurone disease (MND), it has been reported.
In a piece for the East Kilbride News, David Boland told of his desire to help MND Scotland in its quest and will cycle around 100 miles a day for ten days to meet his target.
The PE teacher told the paper that he had never done anything like it before in his life and said it was both a worthy charity and a great experience to represent them.
Mr Boland continued: "I am quite keen on cycling and usually cycle to work in Kirkintilloch two or three times a week in the summer.
"Hopefully, people will donate generously so I can hand as much cash as possible over to the charity."
Last week, the MND Association announced its rebranding scheme, which it hopes will highlight the work of the charity and reflect the development and growth of the organisation.
