CHARLES Dudgeon, Savills head of rural agency spent his Easter cycling 475 miles from Holyrood Palace to Buckingham Palace with John Drysdale, Renwick Drysdale and Geordie Erskine.

With the distance spanning more than 100 miles a day over four and a half days, Charlie and friends navigated south via a maze of B and C roads in support of Doddie Weir MND Research and Scottish Air Ambulance.

Just after finishing, the group had raised £6000 for these two very deserving charities, with donations still rolling in.
