Matthew Blake, who spent four years cycling around the world for charity, is launching a book about his travels on Saturday.

Mr Blake, pictured, from Chacombe, near Banbury, will sign copies of I’ll Be Home Just After Christmas at AKA, Parsons Street, Banbury, from 1pm. He saved £14,000 to embark on the journey in April 2008 to raise £11,000 for a new home for orphaned and abandoned children in Zambia.

He returned in April last year, aged 25, having taken in 61 countries and 46,000 miles.

If I've read this correctly, wouldn't the charity of been £3k better off if he hadn't done the cycle ride and just saved up and gave them a donation?
