City council leader Jon Collins to cycle to south of France for charity
The leader of Nottingham City Council Leader is preparing to cycle from London to Cannes in just six days to raise money for the Karen Green Foundation.
On March 6th 2013, Councillor Jon Collins will be setting out on a mammoth challenge to cycle 938 miles from London to Cannes in aid of the Karen Green Foundation.
The Nottingham-based charity was set up in memory of Karen Green, who lost her battle with leukaemia in July 2011.
The foundation raises money for individuals and organisations researching, treating and fighting leukaemia.

Councillor Collins will join around 80 cyclists making their way down to Cannes on their bikes. They will leave London on Wednesday 6th March hoping to complete the 938 miles course in just six days. The course is broken down into 28 stages, each of 40-60 kilometres.
Councillor Collins said: “This is an important cause and I’m pleased to do what I can to bring the Foundation’s goals closer to reality. A few years ago we raised over £25,000 by completing the Three Peaks Challenge in under 24 hours for the Danielle Beccan Trust. I hope this time I can raise a significant amount of money for another important cause.”
