A BRADFORD man is getting on his bike once again to support a charity close to his heart.

Fresh from completing a 350-mile three-day challenge - cycling to Blackpool, Filey and then a round trip back to Bradford - Mark Cunningham is attempting a non-stop 12-hour cycle in Lister Park on Saturday.

The Eccleshill man is aiming to raise £7,000 for Marie Curie, where both his parents spent their last days.

Mark said: "We tried doing it two years ago but lockdown stopped us so I am really looking forward to it.

"Eccleshill Road Runners are going to be set up with us too, and there will be someone cycling all the time.

"We are just encouraging people to come down to raise money for the Marie Currie Hospice which does such a good job.

“Both my parents spent their last days of life in the hospice, and I got to see the wonderful staff and volunteers at work.

"This month marks a decade since my mother passed away, so it is a celebration of my mum's life too."

Mark has already raised more than £6,000 and hopes this cycle, which starts at 7am, can push the total over the line.
