A UK charity cycling duo were looked after by Oswestry firefighters when they stopped in the town during a Lands End to John O’Groats trip.

Brothers Tim and Bill Light stopped off at Oswestry Fire Station during a quick break as they cycled the length of Britain to raise money for the National Firefighters Charity and an African childcare charity.

The Highwayman pub and Martin’s store gave them free meals and they were given a send off on their way by local firefighters who helped arrange the stopover.
