    Two thumbs up this weekend for super fit Liam Mahoney who cycled hundreds of miles - going nowhere - in the Booths store foyer... and for Booths, too!

    Liam's pictured with store manager Simon Fenwick who like most shoppers broke into a sweat just watching him as he powered his way on a virtual French mountain ride on Saturday, the day before World Cancer Day.

    Here's his story: My name is Liam Mahoney, from Farnworth in Widnes, and I have been a keen amateur cyclist for the past 16 years.

    Over this time I have taken part in many challenging events and races, but this year will undoubtedly be the hardest physical and mental challenge I will ever face in my lifetime.

    I am incredibly proud and honoured that in June 2024, I will be tackling The Tour 21 (Tour de France) on behalf of Cure Leukaemia to help fund the vital research needed to find a cure for this horrible cancer.

    Alongside 24 other amateur cyclists, we will complete the full Tour de France route 1 week ahead of the professionals to collectively raise £1 million for Cure Leukaemia.

    Starting in Tuscany, The Tour 21 will take place from Saturday 22 June - Sunday 14 July and will tackle all 21 gruelling stages and 3,500km of the Tour de France route - the world's most gruelling sporting challenge.

    The route will see us pass through many different countries, terrains and immense challenges - before finishing in Nice, France.

    Every £1 pound you donate in support of this cause, helps Cure Leukaemia fund 15 dedicated research nurses across the UK, helping connect blood cancer patients to potentially life-saving treatment made available through clinical trials.

    Please dig deep and give what you can and support this truly incredible challenge and cause

    Thank you.

    He said: "Booths have been really supportive in my charity efforts and this is the latest store I've been fundraising at."

    Saturday's exploits on his sophisticated training bike saw him raise another £406 towards his £30,000 total - he works for Eat Love Raw, a chocolate supplier to Booths: https://eatloveraw.com/ - that's probably where he gets his energy from!

    *Booths is committed to supporting a number of local charities in all its stores and has a book stall for a Croston youngster that's been well patronised, too at Burscough.
