Stoke's Tony Pulis and comedian Nick Hancock to help hospice

Stoke City FC manager Tony Pulis and comedian Nick Hancock are cycling from John O'Groats to Land's End to help raise funds for a children's hospice.

They will be part of a non-stop cycling relay team that aims to raise £100,000 for the Donna Louise Children's Hospice in Stoke-on-Trent.

The hospice cares for 180 children from Staffordshire and south Cheshire.

A trust spokesman said its services were free for families but cost £2.4m per year to run.

The cycling challenge is due to take place in May.
