More than 80 cyclists have taken part in a sponsored spinathon this weekend to raise funds for Jersey Hospice Care.

The annual event is now in its 16th year and pays tribute to Jay Morris, who lost his life to cancer in 2003.

Jay's father told ITV News the spinathon is a chance to remember Jay and to raise funds for the charity that helped him during his illness.

Friends of Jay started the spinathon as a way of thanking Jersey Hospice for their care that they gave Jay and we've carried this on ever since because we love doing it for the memory of Jay and we love doing it for Jersey Hospice and everybody who takes part always comment on what a lovely day it is.

– Alan Morris, Jay's father

The spinathon has raised more than £200,000 for the hospice since it started.
