A YOUNG boy is set hand over hundreds of pounds to charity in memory of his uncle.
Sean Redgrave (11) plans to cycle from his home in East Calder to the Forth Road Bridge and back to collect money for Cancer Research.
The St Paul’s Primary School pupil was inspired to raise money for the group after his uncle, Kevin Redgrave, died from the illness.
And Sean now aims to raise as much money as possible to help other people battling cancer.
His dad Michael said: “My youngest brother Kevin was only 40 when he died of cancer a couple of years ago and Sean has always wanted to do something in his memory.
“He was too young until now, but as he loves all sports he decided he wants to do the bike ride.
“He has been out training and is building up his distances.”
Sean will carry out his challenge on Wednesday, April 4 when he will cycle the journey of around 36 miles.
Michael said he and his wife Elizabeth are very pleased Sean is carrying out his fundraising effort.
He said: “We are very proud of Sean for doing this, especially when it’s in memory of Kevin.
“It’s a fair distance for him to cycle but he’s confident that he can do it and is looking forward to the challenge.
“All his family and friends are behind him and he’s raised £450 in sponsorship so far for the event.
“But Sean’s determined to raise as much as he can, so any more donations will be gratefully received.”
Anyone who would like to make a donation to Sean’s fundraising can contact his dad Michael on 07954 198 296.
