When primary teacher Mark Conway cycled out of Sheffield last month it was the biggest challenge of his life.

Until then the furthest he had ever ridden was the 30-odd mile, picturesque route to Manchester.

Mark rode solo to London, a gruelling 340 mile round-trip.

Mark, a St Wilfrid’s School primary teacher, undertook the epic journey to raise money for CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development) – a charity close to his heart.

Ecclesall Road’s Nonnas got behind his ride and supplied kit and a venue for his send off.

He said: “I have to thank everyone for their support - I’ve already raised £800.”.

St Wilfred’s School is no stranger to supporting the charity. A recent continental market raised £400.

Nonnas proprietor Maurizio Mori said: “Cycling to London in just two days is one heck of a charity challenge – we were only too pleased to lend him our support!

“Mark Conway’s ride also has extra special meaning for me as I’m a former St Wilfred’s pupil.”
