Local resident of Diss, husband and father of two Peter Sorrell will cycle from the Eastern European country of Moldova to Ukraine, from May 18-24.
The Sorrell family have long been involved in the Link To Hope charity that Peter is cycling for, due to his daughter Helen Ducker and her husband Chris Ducker being the main British links to the charity living in Moldova.
Peter will cycle a total of 171 miles over the course of five days, visiting some of the charity’s projects along the route. Peter will be completing the ride joined by his son-in-law who, working with the Link to Hope charity, has been a main organiser of the bike ride.
Mr Sorrell said: “We have been (to Moldova) four or five times, there’s a lot of poverty but the people are very generous. People think because the country is in Europe it can’t be deprived.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
