Pedal power was the name of the game for a group of Doncaster Children’s Services Trust care leavers when they took part in the seventh annual Ride London national cycling festival at the weekend.

The trio, led by Personal Advisor from the Trust’s 18+ services, Alex Stevenson, joined forces as a team with three young people from the Flying Futures project, their leader Bobby Johnson and former Olympic swimmer James Kirton, for the 46-mile route around the capital.
