A father and son have completed a 44-mile bike ride from Manchester to Liverpool in aid of a malaria charity.

Matt McLaren and his 10-year-old son Dylan embarked on the epic challenge with a work colleague, Ken Moores, and Matt’s dad, Chris.

The four-strong team took six hours to complete the ride and, once all funds are collected, they hope to raise £1,000 for Malaria No More.

Matt, who works for the Haydock branch of Initial Medical, said: “I was so proud of my little lad. He didn’t complain and went the same speed as we did, and I think 
he felt better than I did afterwards!”

Matt, Ken and Chris all work at the Haydock company, which manages clinical and dental waste disposal for hundreds of businesses and organisations in the north.

Ken added: “We are a team within the company, so we worked the same way when we were out on the road.”
