National Express East Anglia train driver Brian Skeet is undertaking a mammoth 92 mile charity bike ride in aid of ‘Help for Heroes’ this Sunday 28 August.
Intrepid Brian, along with five friends from his local caravan club, will be cycling along a picturesque route from Kings Lynn in Norfolk, through Ely, Fordham, Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow, before finishing their epic bike ride in High Ongar, Essex.
Brian Skeet said: “’Help for Heroes’ is a charity which is close to our hearts. Working in Colchester and living in North Essex, one can’t help but be moved by the events affecting the brave soldiers of our local barracks. That’s why this year ‘Help for Heroes’ is our chosen charity. We’re particularly pleased that a soldier from the Royal Anglian regiment will be able to join us for the last section of our charity bike ride.”
‘Help for Heroes’ is a charity formed to help those who have been wounded in Britain’s current conflicts, for more information please log on to www.helpforheroes.org.uk

James Reeve National Express East Anglia’s Colchester Station Manager said: “Brian is a familiar face to many of our customers who pass through Colchester station. It’s great that he is undertaking this charity bike ride in order to benefit a cause which means so much to the people of Colchester. I wish him the very best with his fundraising.”
Brian lives in North Essex and is a Colchester-based train driver.
