Star backing charity cycle

Have your say

A CHARITY bike ride, run by supermarket giant Iceland and backed by former X Factor hopeful Stacey Solomon, will tour the Lothians as part of a fundraising effort for Alzheimer’s Research.

The cycle tour will travel 59 miles from Johnstone to Edinburgh on August 14 for Iceland Foods’ Cycle Britain challenge, which hopes to raise £1 million.

Ms Solomon said: “I’ve just had a baby so I’m not super-fit but I really wanted to help raise as much money as possible. The thought of someone I love getting Alzheimer’s is really scary — this will help us learn more about it.”
