Ride of a lifetime raises £3.5k
CANCER survivor Tim Jamfrey has successfully completed his 3,000-mile charity motorcycle challenge.
The 53-year-old travelled through 11 countries across Europe in seven days, raising £3,500 for Cotswold Care Hospice in Minchinhampton.
He decided to make the trip following his battle against bowel cancer and wanted to thank the hospice for its counselling support.
Tim lives in Stroud with his wife Carol and son Joe and works for Novalis Trust.

He rode his BMW 1150 through Belgium, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg, Czech Republic, Austria, Solvenia, Italy, Lichtenstein, Switzerland and France.
The hardest part of the trip was riding through 40C temperatures from Slovenia to Italy.
"It was driving with a hair dryer in your face," he said.
Tim says it was a trip of a lifetime and took him more than a year to organise.
He added: "It was brilliant and I loved every minute of it. I would love to have gone further and for longer if I could have afforded it."
The highlight was riding through the mountains in the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Italy and Austria. The most boring was travelling back across France to go home.
His main sponsor was Novalis Trust and he paid his own expenses.
