A group of cycling enthusiasts have completed a coast to coast challenge and raised £500 for Derby-based Sinfonia Viva orchestra’s ‘Make a Child Smile’ appeal.

Carl Muldal, who works at Rolls-Royce plc and is a board member of Sinfonia Viva, brought together a group of friends to cycle 140 miles west to east across the country in a weekend.

The money raised will go towards further expanding the orchestra’s work including a three-year creative project which has been established thanks to grant funding from BBC Children in Need.
