Toots for the tandem tutus

Debbie Edge and Suzy Cramb during training last month in the Lake DistrictListeners are hearing updates from the back of a tandem bicycle - as a Wirral woman aims to raise thousands of pounds for a charity which helps sick youngsters in Clatterbridge.

Debbie Edge, wife of New Ferry butcher Callum Edge, have set off on a 13 day ride from Lands End to John O'Groats with her friend... wearing tutus!

The 51 year old is raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust, which funds two experts staff on Sulby Ward in The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, and the Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust.

Pal Suzy Cramb's 19 year old son was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer two and a half years ago.

They're cycling the 874 miles together - wearing the tutus to encourage motorists to toot their horns and donate to the cause!

The girls have 75 friends joining them for different legs of the 13 day journey.
