FATHER and son Graham and George Richardson are planning to pedal from London to Paris next month.

They are taking on the daunting Kevin Murphy cycling challenge to raise funds for breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel.

Graham and George are the businessmen behind Arbor Living which builds luxury park homes for the over-55s, and has its head office at Alderley Edge.

They aim to cycle 300 miles over five days, and have already raised £2,700 towards their £3,500 charity target.

CoppaFeel is the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness among young people.

Graham said: “With a combined age of 94, and one of us eligible for state pension six weeks after this challenge, we felt raising awareness for something that has affected our family and many others to be of high importance.

“We are aiming to raise £3,500 to help raise awareness for this brilliant cause and to make spending time in the saddle worth it.”

George said: “Between May 15 and 19 we will be spending up to eight hours every day on our bikes, tackling the route from London to the Champs Élysées in Paris.

“Thankfully, solely due to early detection and very swift action, often cancer can be beaten, and we feel this cause can help save lives.”
