Alfie Hall completes Land's End to John O'Groats cycle challenge

Squadron Leader Alfie Hall of Royal Auxiliary Air Force 607 Squadron this week completed his 1201 mile cycling challenge from Land’s End to John O’Groats. He’s raised £650 in the process to help RAF family members.

Alfie's no stranger to the route, having completed the epic journey once before in 2012.

He set off from Land's End on 1 July, undertaking his feat entirely unsupported, carrying all his food and water with him.

Originally from Sheffield, but now living in York, Alfie has been an RAF Reservist for 20 years. He said of his quest: "I'm delighted to be raising money for the RAF Benevolent Fund. I've seen the work that they undertake, and it really does make a difference. This is a personal quest for me, but to be able to help the RAF Family in the process is a wonderful bonus."

Mark Quinn, Regional Director for the RAF Benevolent Fund, said: "Alfie really is going the extra mile for us with his challenge! To take on something of this magnitude really is something special. The RAF Benevolent is very grateful for his support."
