A CAR salesman has swapped four wheels for two in a bid to net funds for Prostate Cancer UK.

Eric Anderson, 60, raised more than £700 for the good cause by cycling more than 200 miles in May across Stirling.

The used car sales manager said: “Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, killing 11,500 men a year.

“That’s one dad, partner, son, brother, grandad, uncle or mate every 45 minutes, but it doesn't have to be this way.”

Eric, who works for Lookers Stirling Audi, has been blown away by the generosity of family, friends, colleagues and complete strangers.

It inspired him to go well over his 200mile target and has since clocked up nearly 260.

The sales manager added: “Working for Lookers Stirling Audi, I’m passionate about cars and usually in the driving seat.

“This time, I decided to take to the road to clock up 200miles by bike to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK, an incredible charity involved in lifesaving research for men and their families affected by the disease.

“Initially I had hoped to fundraise £350 but I’ve been blown away by the generosity of family, friends, colleagues at Lookers and even complete strangers who have more than doubled my target.

“This is what kept me going each day.

“I’m always up for a challenge and my plan now is to keep pedalling to help raise awareness of the charity and the vital work that it does.”
