Dig deep to support Stephen and Mike.

TWO intrepid members of Liverpool's Community Department are gearing up for a 180-mile coast-to-coast bike ride for charities close to their hearts.

Mike Yates and Stephen Hollis will be joined by their two friends, Mark Haig and Barry Major, on a three-day trek that will take them from Ravenglass in Cumbria, on September 1, to Sunderland's Stadium Of Light.

Stephen is supporting Claire House after the Wirral Hospice cared for a close family friend's son, Harvey Jones Lanagan, who died from Peroxisome Biogenesis disorder, aged just four.

"Claire House is an amazing place and close to my heart and this is just something that we wanted to do," said Stephen, as he mapped out the route that is also known as Hadrian's Cycle Way.

Mike, meanwhile, is hoping to raise as much money as he possibly can for Meningitis UK, after he tragically lost his nine-month old niece, Eloise Lema Dalton, just before Christmas last year.

Anyone wishing to make donations can do so via www.justgiving.com/stephen hollis or by visiting www.meningitisuk.org and typing Eloise's name into the search engine.
