A Pitmedden woman has embarked on a 24 hour cycling challenge to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Hoping to cover at least 300 miles, Jenny Noble set off at noon today (Saturday), cheered on by friends and family, to start laps of a 32 mile route.

She has planned a 32 mile route and is taking a short break after each lap for food and comfort.

It is her hope that she will manage to complete 300 miles around noon on Sunday.

The challenge was inspired by her niece Lucy, who is currently undergoing treatment Hodgkin's Lymphoma and has been supported by the charity since her diagnosis.

Speaking before setting off, Jenny said: "I'm very, very nervous, but I'm sure once I'm going it'll be fine!

"I have friends and my husband coming out on different laps with me for support."

The mammoth challenge has already raised over £2400, with the total continuing to climb.
