PEDAL power pulled in the pounds thanks to a determined dad whose son uses a vital service at King’s Mill Hospital.

Scott Taylor (31) saddled up for bum-numbing trek from Kirkby to Skegness and back again in aid of the County Health Partnerships’ Children’s Development Centre, based at the Sutton hospital.

The children’s centre provides therapy services for children with a range of complex health needs.

Scott’s stepson, Caiden, has Cerebral Palsy and regularly visits the centre for appointments with the physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists.

Scott said: “I wanted to raise money for the Children’s Development Centre because we really appreciate all the support that they provide for Caiden and also for us.

“They have helped him settle into school and we wanted to give something back to say thank you.”

Scott fractured his ankle just before the ride, but still continued and completed the 164-mile journey, successfully raising £1,124. The centre is now planning to use the cash to buy toys and equipment for the visiting youngsters.
