Anniversary challenge

BOROUGH couple Mike and Gill Nevin have found a novel way to celebrate their wedding anniversary - a 380km bike ride.

BOROUGH couple Mike and Gill Nevin have found a novel way to celebrate their wedding anniversary - a 380km bike ride.

The couple will celebrate 30 years of marriage in Jamaica, but there won’t be much time for sun-bathing, as they race to complete the six-day challenge.

And spurring them along the way will be one of the island’s most famous residents - TV’s Mr Motivator.

The fitness guru - who visited Touchwood earlier this year to promote the bike ride - will be leading a group along the north coast.

Proceeds will go to Marie Curie Cancer Care - a cause close to the couple’s heart. Their brother-in-law Colin Clifton had died from the illness in his forties.

In recent weeks the pair have been pedalling around Solihull to make sure they’re in the best possible shape for the challenge.

But before they leave for the Caribbean, the Nevins are also holding a special ball at St John’s Hotel, in Solihull.

Mr Motivator himself will be making an appearance, while local comic Don Maclean will be hosting the evening.

Guests can also look forward to a three-course dinner and charity raffle.

To buy tickets for the ball call 07734 689 313.
