THE husband of a woman being supported by the Primrose Hospice smashed a 100k indoor cycle challenge in aid of the charity.
Headless Cross resident Kevin Thurman, aged 65, completed the mammoth cycle in under three hours and live streamed the event to Facebook – raising £752 in the process.
Kevin’s wife, Sue, has clinical appointments at the hospice and the couple use its family support services too.
Kevin said completing the challenge was his way of saying thank you.
“When we were told about seeing someone at the Primrose it was quite frightening not really knowing what there was to offer.
“We just thought it was a scary place, thinking it was a place to die peacefully, but now we know different.
“It’s a place to get advice, therapy and socialise. Every aspect she has been involved in with at the Primrose has given her peace of mind.”
Kevin had originally hoped to complete the Birmingham Velo for Primrose however it was cancelled.
He turned his attention to a 97km Worcestershire pubs bike ride but unfortunately for him, lockdown struck.
Though he plans to do the ride before the end of the year.
