A LAMPETER cyclist who once sustained a serious leg injury has rode 970 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise £1,100 for the Bronglais Chemo Appeal.

Dallas Wiseman, a garage aftersales manager, did the challenge in just 10 days with two of his friends, Barry Davies and John McDonogh.

“We were planning this before the pandemic and finally got to do it in May,” he said.

“As a keen cyclist, it was definitely on my bucket list and, though it was tough doing 100 miles a day, it was great to finish on schedule.”

It was even more of an achievement for Dallas because he had suffered a double fracture of his leg after a mountain biking accident just a year ago.

“I wanted to give something back to Bronglais Hospital and we all know someone who has had treatment for cancer,” the 50-year-old added.

“Cancer could happen to anyone at any time and being able to have care close to home is so important.”

The Bronglais Chemo Appeal aims to raise the final £500,000 needed for construction to start on a new, purpose-built chemotherapy day unit for Aberystwyth’s Bronglais Hospital, to greatly improve the patient experience.
