WHEELCHAIR fencing star Adrian Derbyshire met shoppers on Saturday to raise awareness of his 1,000 mile journey.

The Great Sankey medal-winner is taking to a hand cycle in a bid to stamp out hate crime.

And visitors to Warrington Market got to see the specially-constructed hand-trike which Adrian will use to cycle the 355 miles from Warrington to Land’s End via an awareness-raising tour of the north west – a total journey of 1,000 miles.
