Johnno takes on the Gavin2Stacey Charity Cycle

Nottingham Rugby's Backs Coach, Ben Johnston, will be spending the weekend of the 22nd - 24th August cycling in the Gavin2Stacey Cycle Ride for Macmillan Cancer Support. 

The 250 mile charity cycle ride starts at Billericay (Essex) and finishes in Barry (South Wales), where the challenge has become aptly know as the Gavin2Stacey ride.

It's creation lies in a true Romeo and Juliet story, when Lisa, from just outside Cardiff and Paul, from Essex, met and fell in love. They married in 2013 where this challenge came to life. Unfortunately, in 2003 Paul's father passed away to cancer with this year being the eleventh anniversary of his death. Through organising this unique challenge, Paul and Lisa hope to celebrate his life whilst also helping raise vital funds for several charities across the UK. 

Johnno is a close family friend of Lisa and Paul, and was best man at their wedding, making this an extremely personal challenge for him. Johnno's selected charity is Macmillan Cancer Support who work towards improving the lives of people affected by cancer by providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support, in addition to pushing for better cancer care.
