SOHAM fundraiser Callum Fairhurst is hoping to raise thousands of pounds by cycling 800 miles across the UK this summer.
Callum, 15, will be joined by friends David and Nick Culley as they set off from Cambridge on June 29 on a tour of the country that will end at Number 10, Downing Street, in London.
Among the towns and cities the trio will visit are Peterborough, Ipswich, Colchester, Brighton, Reading and Norwich.
En route they hope to inspire thousands of school children and young people to make a difference in their communities, whilst also spreading the message of the Liam Fairhurst Foundation.
The foundation, helping young people affected by cancer, illness and disabilities, was founded in memory of Callum’s older brother - Liam - who died of cancer aged just 14 in 2009.
You may also want to watch:
Liam became the figure head for many campaigns and, at the time of his death, raised more than £340,000 for children with cancer.
The cycle, named Chains For Change, also encourages cyclists of all abilities to join in and raise awareness and cash for the foundation.
