A grateful dad is preparing to take on a 173 mile bike ride for a charity which helped support him and his wife when their son was critically ill.

Marcus and Laura Leverton, of Walton, Chesterfield, have raised £47,000 for the Sick Children’s Trust with black-tie dinner events after son Harry was treated at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

And now Marcus and seven pals aim to complete a sponsored cycle challenge for the charity which provides free accommodation at the hospital for relatives while children are undergoing life-saving care.
