Father and son in appeal over cycling challenge.

A FATHER-AND-SON team from Coventry gearing up for a fundraising cycle ride from Land's End to John O'Groats have appealed for more support.

Coundon Court School pupil Philip Baylis, aged 14, and his dad Phil, aged 41, are taking on the three-week challenge from August 1. They are aiming to raise pounds 10,000 for the Caludon Centre mental health unit at Walsgrave Hospital - but so far have just pounds 1,000.

Mr Baylis, who works at Hi-Vision Systems, at Binley industrial estate, in Hotchkiss Way, Binley, said: "The Caludon Centre is a much-needed facility but unless we raise a lot more very quickly we'll barely have the money to cover the cost of the cycle ride."

The pair's next fundraiser is a May Day fun day at the Shepherd and Shepherdess pub, in Keresley Road, Keresley, on Monday, from noon. Events include a bouncy castle, barbecue. raffles, and games, as well as a sports auction in the evening, when prizes will include a signed Coventry City football. Mr Baylis added: "We want as many families to come along and support us and have as fantastic a day out as possible and we want to raise as much as we possibly can."

For details about sponsorship, ring Mr Baylis on 07980 632 891 or e-mail him at: p hilcov40@yahoo.co.uk
