A group of fundraising cyclists from the Great Yarmouth area are asking people from the borough if they want to pay their respects to relatives who died in conflicts as part of their charity trek across First World War battlefield.

From June 8, the six cyclists and a two man support team will set off from the Menin Gate in Belgium and over the next two days they will make their back to their home borough in aid of Scotty’s Little Soldiers.

The Ypres to Yarmouth #Y2Y group comprises Tim Amphlett, Paul Bunnewell, Chris Clements, Patrick Green, Kevin Huggins, Kevin Pywell, Leigh Reeder and Karl Reeder and they will make their way through Flanders and Passchendaele.

They have been given permission to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate in Belgium and they are asking if people want to add a name of a relative who died in any conflict on the wreath in return for a donation of £5.

To make a donation and suggest a name call Mr Huggins on 07712075088 or email kevin.fusion@btconnect.com
