A FATHER and daughter from Pill who cycled 1,100 miles to raise money for Bristol's Multiple Sclerosis Centre have organised a music concert to bolster funds further.
Jenni Buck and her dad Bob during a previous fundraiser were given a surprise welcome by Rupert Wilson, general manager of Rick Stein's restaurant in Padstow
Jenni Buck, aged 46, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998 and visits the centre for oxygen therapy, and dad Bob, 66, cycled from Land's End to John O'Groats.
Despite her condition Jenni enjoys cycling and she and her father have completed several different fund-raising rides over the years.
The ride, and a number of fundraising events including quizzes, skittle rolls up and an old time musical pie and pint event has taken the fundraising total so far to £10,900.
All money raised will go to the centre which relocated to a purpose built centre in Bradley Stoke last year.
The final fundraising event - a concert by the Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choir - is now planned for Saturday, March 16 at 7.30pm.
The concert will take place at St George's Church, Easton-in-Gordano and the choir will be supported by Pill's very own Singing Ladies.
There will be an 'afterglow party' at the Kings Head in Pill.
Tickets are £7 and can be purchased by calling 01275 373750 or from Pill Resource Centre.
