Top racer Claude takes on two wheels to help sick Callum

Our No1 Master Skier and father of Rory, Claude, has been training for many months to prepare himself for a gruelling 200 mile one day cycle ride from Edinburgh to Newcastle next Sunday, 8th Jult 2012.

Claude is raising money for Callum who is 7 years old and has cerebral palsy. Callum had a tough start to life, he was born 14 weeks premature and was very lucky to have survived his first night. He proved us and the doctors all wrong and pulled through and after spending 11 weeks in hospital he was allowed to come home.

His support group has already raised the minimum amount of £ 40,000 which is needed to carry out an important operation but Callum need further extensive care. Claude and the team of riders are taking the Edinburgh challenge to raise that money.

If you would like to support Claude and the team you can donate at Claude's Just Giving page at http://www.justgiving.com/Claude-Farren0

Many thanks.
