A CHARITY campaigner and his daughter are embarking on an epic bike ride this week.
Ian Leech, of Branston, and his daughter Becky will be cycling from London to Paris to raise money for the Lymphoma Association, a cause close to his heart following the death of this daughter Mel from non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2008, aged 20.
Mr Leech said: “This is the third (and final) time I’ve cycled this ride.
“I said the second time would be the last, but when my daughter Becky suggested we do a cycle ride together, I didn’t need to think twice about it. I always said that for my fiftieth year, I wanted to do something special and I can’t think of anything more special than cycling to Paris with my daughter.”
