Former Royal Marine and Falklands War veteran Chris MacMillan and his daughter Danielle undertook an epic bike ride for charity.
They started their journey in August, leaving from the main gates of his former base at RM Condor on the outskirts of Arbroath and cycling all the way to HMS Excellent in Portsmouth.
The aim of the fundraising cycle was to raise funds for Combat Stress, the UK’s leading veterans’ mental health charity.
The fundraiser took almost a week and Danielle’s boyfriend, Alan Twaddle, also got on his bike and accompanied them on the journey.
Danielle said: “The reason we are raising money and awareness for Combat Stress is because throughout Chris’s whole life, he has fought for his country.
“He served 23 years as a Marine, starting at the bottom and working his way up to a warrant officer 1.
“Throughout his career, he has met people who suffer the stress of the military, so to help this amazing charity we decided to take on this challenge and raise as much money as we can to help these men and woman.”
Chris’s hobby is renovating old bikes and he was given an old recruitment bike that was in need of some restoration from a charity bike centre in Portsmouth.
After Chris took it apart, fixed it and put it back together, this was the bike he used.
The group managed to raise £1,575 but people can still donate to the cause by visiting www.justgiving.com/cycling-because.
