Two friends from Oswestry will be cycling more than 300 miles from London to Germany this year.

Seymour Roberts lost his wife, Sally to cancer in October last year after a four-year battle.

His daughters, Sally Roberts and Fizz Scarratt said: "She was the most inspirational person I've ever met and didn't complain once despite going through gruelling treatment, she always had a smile and laughed through the tough times. Mum was supported by hundreds of different people either friends, family or healthcare professionals."

Sally received over four rounds of Chemotherapy at the Shooting Star Unit at the Maelor hospital in Wrexham. The unit opened in 2004 and is a specialist cancer care centre designed to give a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for anyone under their care, as well as families and friends.

As a thank you to the unit and to help other people with a similar illness, Seymour and his friend Ben Fretwell will be taking on 352 miles over a period of four days in June.

Griffiths Hire Shops in Oswestry, where Seymour and Ben work, are 'proudly' sponsoring the bike ride.
