10-year-old Cycling Morecambe Prom for charity

John Freeman
Local Cub and Morecambe resident Lewis MacPherson has set himself a big challenge next month: cycling 25 miles to raise money for a new Scout Groups minibus... quite a challenge for a ten-year-old!

"I love cycling," explains Lewis, who is a cub scout in 16th Morecambe and Heysham Cubs "and we desperately need a new minibus as the one we have is falling to bits!"

Lewis plans to cycle 25 miles on Saturday 15th May to raise money for the cause, cycling the length of Morecambe Prom four times (one length being from where the cycle path starts at Heysham to VVV Sports) then home.

"If we don't get a new one, all the cubs will have to get very good at cycling," jokes Leiws, "as we'll have to cycle everywhere!"
