Sheffield fundraisers using pedal power to tackle hearing loss

Staff and students from Sheffield University will team up to cycle across the country and raise money for hearing research.

Participants will take on a 969-mile cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats in nine days.

A spokesman said: “More than 10 million people in the UK have some level of hearing loss. It’s a major health issue that cannot be cured.”

The team has raised £15,500 so far.
