On May 6th Ian cycled from Scotland to London on a 7 day solo bike ride after promising to do it if his followers on Twitter and Facebook donated to
#StephensStory to help get Stephen Sutton's Teenager Cancer Trust total to £2M.
Ian set the challenge after hearing about Stephens inspiring, brave,
beautiful story and when Jason Manford shared the sentence that Stephen had said “Life should not be measured by numbers but by achiements” It inspired him to do something!
If you wish to donate you can text “Stephen” to 70500 to donate £5 or via

"To give freely of yourself to help another is to help yourself as much"
Stephen inspired me to go and just do something.
He has left me with a life long memory and a story to tell for which I shall always be grateful.
He was brave beyond words and can truly be remembered as a hero.
We can all learn from him and his legacy will, for me anyway, live on.
Go fly with the angels you beautiful man.
