While he’s not playing chess Cllr Paul Canal (Bridge) has been busy refurbishing various bicyles for Wanstead UpCycles.

He has recently been working on a two-year-old out of stock Chris Hoy bicycle (which goes for £350 brand new), which was donated by an 11-year-old boy.

Paul has set a goal of raising £1,000 for Haven House and is auctioning the bicycle starting Saturday, June 20.
