A determined fundraiser is following in the footsteps of her grandmother by taking on a challenging bike ride.

Emma Horspool will be cycling from Trinidad to Havana in Cuba next month.

The bike ride, which will see Emma take in some of the magnificent scenery of the country, starts on May 2.

Much of the Harborough woman’s training has been done at Snap Fitness in town due to the recent rainy weather.

Her challenge follows in the footsteps of her recently deceased grandma, who was a dedicated fundraiser who took on a number of challenges for good causes.

Her grandmother was still taking part in fundraising events, including abseiling, well into her 80s.

The bike ride will be raising funds to fight breast cancer, cervical cancer and ovarian cancer.
