A FORMER soldier who is cycling across 13 countries to raise funds for Help for Heroes came to Wearside to raise awareness about the charity.

South African Hendrik van der Mescht, who was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder after leaving the Army, wants to raise £50,000 for the good cause.

The 37-year-old former Coldstream Guard cycled from London to Sunderland and back to let people know about a 15,000-mile ride to Cape Town next year.
