Saddling up for charity

Have your say

A TEENAGE fundraiser is getting on the saddle today to raise money for cancer research.

Adam Powell, aged 19, of Ashpool Fold, Woodhouse, Sheffield, is cycling from Bramall Lane to Old Trafford.

The former City School pupil, who supports both Sheffield United and Manchester United, is pedalling the 46 miles across the Pennines to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.

“My nan’s sister has stomach cancer and is being treated at Weston Park at the moment,” Adam said.

“My mum’s friend also died of cancer, so I wanted to raise some money for the charity.”

Adam is hoping to raise £600.
