CHARITY: Ian Campbell and fundraisers from Hartlepool who cycles 123-miles to raise cash for charity

A TEAM of hardy fundraisers cycled 123-miles to raise cash in tribute to a battling five-year-old who is fighting leukaemia.

Ian Campbell and several of his friends took on the White Rose Cycle Route from Middlesbrough to Hull to raise cash after his cousin’s daughter was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in November last year.

Ian’s cousin, Glenn Harvey-Noble, who is from Hartlepool but now lives in Coventry, launched a fundraising campaign as his eldest daughter Nancy is battling the condition.

At the end of the rise Glenn texted a picture of support from Nancy to thank the fundraisers.

Ian Campbell said: “Saturday was a hard day with the climb up from Stainton to Cod Beck Reservoir, being in the driving rain. Sunday was a delight as the route levelled off and we had a nice leisurely ride to Hull, finishing there at 3pm. Then back to the Old Boys Rugby club for an after drinks celebration.”

National Tube Stockholders (NTS) in Thirsk donated £190 after a tea party and NTS also loaned the trailer for the event the get the team’s bikes back to base.
