A PAIR of sailors are preparing to cycle 300 miles to raise cash for charities which are close to their hearts.
Chief Petty Officer Paul O’Shaughnessy, 46 and Lieutenant Tim Johnson, 32 will be cycling from HMS Collingwood in Fareham to the Liver Building in Liverpool.
They will raise money for the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB), The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Cancer Research.
Paul’s mum has lost her sight due to macular degeneration and Tim’s mother-in-law died of cancer last year.
Both Paul and Tim are originally from Liverpool and will take on the bike ride in June over three days, cycling cross-country to avoid major roads.
They will be collecting money at MoD establishments along the way.
