Cream DJ To Cycle To Ibiza

A nightclub DJ, who is cycling from Wirral to Ibiza, nearly didn't make it on air - because he got lost trying to find our studios!

Cream resident Sean Hughes leaves West Kirby later this month hoping to raise thousands of pounds in memory of his mum.

Sean hopes to cycle 70 miles a day, stopping off for more fund raising at night clubs on route in Bristol and Brighton, before the big push through Europe, to complete the 1300 mile journey.

He aims to be in Ibiza in time to DJ on the opening night of Cream's summer season.

Sean hopes to raise £5,000 for the Clatterbridge Cancer Centre where his mother was treated six years ago. Although Sheila ultimately lost her battle with cancer, Sean says she had some great care and was impressed with the work carried out by the staff.

"She really did actually have quite a good time here. When we used to come in and visit her she would always be laughing and joking. She was in great hands.

I just always wanted to do something pretty big to raise some money to give back for the great care she received here at Clatterbridge." - Cream DJ Sean Hughes

He has no support team, just himself, his newly aquired bike and a puncture repair kit!

Sean is stepping up his training, and is currently on 24 miles a day and more at weekends.

He told presenter Steve Evans how he was also inspired by a friend who flew to Thailand, bought a second hand bike, and cycled back to England.

You can follow Sean's progress on Facebook and donate to the cause on his JustGiving page.

Let's just hope his map-reading improves.
