Robert and Helen Wordsworth are planning to celebrate 40 years of marriage by cycling 900 miles across France.

The 'Cycle 900 Challenge' will begin on Thursday morning (26th April) and will continue until 31st May.

The challenge is aiming to raise money for 'Parish Nursing Ministries UK' – a charity that places registered nurses with churches to help people of all faiths and none in their local community have better health and wellness. The charity aims to have nurses in 200 churches by 2020.

The cycle ride will link together not only the Wordworth's 40th wedding anniversary, but also the 900th anniversary of Peterborough Cathedral and the 70th anniversary of the NHS.
