SIX friends will be cycling from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise money for a cancer charity.

James Bengree, 28, has seen first-hand the effect cancer can have on families.

James, of Hedge End, who works at McAndrew Martin Chartered Surveyors, Dundas Lane, Portsmouth, said: ‘My father-in-law died last October from a brain tumour.

‘Then my mother-in-law was also diagnosed with cancer; she is battling ovarian cancer.

‘My wife Laura also had a malignant sarcoma to the jaw.

‘It was a dreadful time and that’s why I want to raise money for Cancer Research.’

James will be joined by the other riders, made up of friends and families – all who have had personal experience with cancer. The group will be setting off on July 23 and hope to complete the journey in nine days.

‘It’s good to get out and do a challenge that takes you out of your comfort zone.
