A group of friends hope to raise £5,000 for charity when they cycle the length of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal next month.

Andy Williams, Simon Barns, Adam Knight, Lee Moss, David Know, David Woods, Gordon Clasped, Mark Keiss, Mark Gardener, Paul Chapman, Tom Hunter, Richard Birch, Gary Fields and Chris Holmes will set out from Liverpool early on June 5 to pedal the 127 miles to Leeds over the course of two days.

They will be joined by Peter Williams, who is driving their support van. The team, which has already raised more than £2,000, hopes to generate £5,000 for the Yorkshire Cancer Centre. All money donated will go to the charity.
