A CYCLIST from Chelmsford is preparing to cycle 950 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise funds for Canine Partners.

William Bishop, 32, (pictured) will be joined by a school friend when they begin the journey next month.

Canine Partners is a charity that provides highly-trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities.
