COMPANY bosses were inspired by a nine-year-old boy’s cancer survival battle to get on their bikes and ride up three mountains to raise money for charity.

The boy, called Freddie, is a family friend of Jonathan Smith, who lives in Manor Close, Bromham, near Bedford, and who is managing director of Trinity Estates, in Mark Road, Hemel Hempstead.

Jonathan and Angus Cooper, Trinity’s new schemes manager, from Linford Avenue, Newport Pagnell, are doing the Three Peak Challenge from June 9 to 16.

Jonathan and Angus will climb Ben Nevis, in Scotland, after which they will cycle to Irton, in England, where they will climb Scafell Pike. They will get back on their bikes, ride to Betws-y-coed and somehow find the energy to climb Mount Snowdon, in north Wales, finishing on the June 16.

They are doing the 518 mile challenge to raise money for the The Neuroblastoma Society. The society was created to help raise awareness, funding, research and support for children suffering from Neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer.
