Burnham fundraisier to tackle Exmoor Beast challenge in father's memory
7:30pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
AN ACCOUNTANT technician from Burnham is preparing to take on a 100km cycle challenge in memory of her father.
Sophie Duckett, who works at Ardwyn Channon in Victoria Street, is training for the Exmoor Beast 100km Cycle on Sunday (October 20) to raise awareness of Sarcoma cancer.
Her dad, Colin Duckett, died in June this year, aged 52.
He had a rare soft-celled Sarcoma cancer which returned three times.
Sophie said: “I have chosen to raise money for Sarcoma UK, as I want to help them raise awareness of rare sarcoma cancers and help them fund research and support those who have been affected by the cancer and their families.
“Dad was, and still is, a massive inspiration to me and very much enjoyed cycling.
"He took part in cycle races over Dartmoor several times, which has inspired me to follow in his footsteps and complete this 100km challenge over Exmoor in his memory.”
To sponsor Sophie visit her Just Giving webpage, or to donate £5 text COLN52 £5 to 70070.
Any sponsorship can also be left at Monsieurs Barbershop, 3 Court Street, Bridgwater.
