Friends will hop on their bikes for a charity cycle ride to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

Finchley and Golders Green Labour candidate Sarah Sackman and five of her friends have so far raised more than £300 in sponsorship money.

She will be joined by friends Christina Pagel, Justin Ashmall, Adam Squires, Dan Squires and Matthew Owens.

Just hours before the 54 mile race in Clapham Common, they have planned to watch England v Italy in the world cup, which ends at 1am.

Ms Sackman said: “I’m doing the ride because everyone knows someone who has been affected by heart disease.

“I’m slightly dreading it because it’s going to be hot on Sunday. But also because I’ll have been up till one in the morning watching England beat Italy in the World Cup.” “We haven't raised a huge amount yet but hope to get more donations this weekend and people can still donate after Sunday.”
