Two cyclists on a charity mission to visit every gold painted Olympic and Paralympic postbox stopped off in Belton this month.
There are 111 of the commemorative postboxes across the country, including that of 2012 Paralympic swimming gold medallist Jessica-Jane Applegate.
Riders Lucas Meagor and Chris Britton met Jessica-Jane at her postbox in Station Road South this week, as part of their 3,000 mile journey.
It is the most easterly of the golden postboxes in Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The cycling duo hope to raise more than £5,000 for three charities; Sport Relief 2014, the British Paralympic Association and Tree of Hope.
Their epic trip, which started in Penzance, is scheduled to finish on June 26 in Hull.
