A KEEN cyclist is to travel from Chelmsford to Marrakech in Morocco later this year in aid of Pump Aid.

Jonathan Collard, 33, will undertake the 2,100-mile journey solo, towing all of his own equipment in a trailer. Jonathan hopes to raise £3,000 for Pump Aid. The money will be enough to fund a complete water pump in rural Africa.

Jonathan is no stranger to epic charity events. Last year he completed the 24 hour Three Peak challenge to raise funds for the Essex Air Ambulance.
