A charity supporter who has already raised thousands of pounds during a gruelling cycling expedition, is hoping to build on that total with her latest challenge.

Competitive cyclist Emma Johnson, of Iken, near Woodbridge, will be leaving her bike behind when she embarks on her next adventure in aid of Against Breast Cancer – the Great North Run, on September 7. The committed fundraiser has already amassed £12,500 for the charity by completing the 1,500-mile Rock Ride from Gibraltar in June. Now she is hoping to top £14,000.

Ms Johnson, who is known as Magic, describes her self as “not really a runner”, but has been training determinedly with her pet dog Zulu, as she is passionate about the cause.

“Having seen a number of friends and families go through the heartache of breast cancer, and knowing I have the ability and drive to take part in challenges, I see my fundraising as a way of helping others less able,” she said.
