Charity: Solent Mind

Approx amount raised: £12,000

Not only did Marcia raise thousands for her local mental health charity, she set a world record on the way. She rode Lands End to John o Groats and back in 11.5 days, becoming the first woman to do so. She took on the challenge at the age of 54, and also made it her mission to encourage others, especially less active people, to get on their bikes.
