Macmillan Cancer Support charity bike ride brothers ready for north Suffolk challenge

Brothers Jonny and Martin Dickson will have their father in mind when they complete a 100-mile cycle ride around north Suffolk villages to raise money for a cancer charity.

The pair, aged 33 and 35 respectively, will be completing the bike ride on May 5 to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support in memory of their father Laurie, who died from skin cancer in January 2011.

They will be starting and finishing at the Dolphin pub in Wortham and will be completing five 20-mile circuits around the villages, visiting places that would have been familiar to their father.

Mr Dickson was well known to community organisations in the Diss area, as he was actively involved with tennis clubs and Diss Squash Club, while he was also an actor with the Wortham and Redgrave Theatre Group.

Jonny said: 'He was very energetic in life in general and he was very passionate about his interests. He was very confident and had a large number of friends.'
