A 110-mile sponsored bike ride raised more than £7,000 after the fundraiser completed the journey in 12 hours.
Mel Davis, the catering manager at Birmingham based Midland Heart, took part in the gruelling bike ride from Barnsley to Birmingham to raise essential funds for FareShare Birmingham, which provides surplus food to organisations who work with disadvantaged people.
Mel said: "We set out with a target of raising around £5,000 and, thanks to the generosity of those we met on the way, the sponsors and Midland Heart who matched the money we raised pound for pound, it brings the total to £7,400.
"Midland Heart works in partnership with FareShare Birmingham and without the support of its volunteers and fundraisers we would be unable to offer this service to the people who need it most.
"We are now entering a critical time for the charity and with Christmas just around the corner we are appealing for everyone to help, no matter how small the gesture."
Midland Heart and FareShare Birmingham are still looking for donations and would be delighted to hear from anyone who can help.
Tom Murtha, chief operating officer at Midland Heart, said: "After months of training, Mel has completed a testing journey to raise funds for charity. We are proud of his achievement and continue to support him in the work he does for FareShare Birmingham."
In addition to Midland Heart, other corporate sponsors that supported Mel included Oakland International, Johal Dairies, MKG Frozen Foods and Clintons Butchers.
