County solicitor heads for Dead Sea charity cycle expedition

Staffordshire County Council solicitor David Brammer is training for a 340km cycle ride around the Dead Sea in a bid to raise funds for a cancer charity.

He will set out on 23 November with around 50 other Britons who are seeking to raise £200,000 for the Cancer Relief MacMillan Fund.

Brammer is well on his way to raising the £2,000 sponsorship required. "I've found parts of the legal community quite generous," he said.

However, Brammer, who will be cycling for seven days in temperatures hovering around 80F, is still looking to fellow solicitors to help him reach his sponsorship target.

Those wishing to help can contact Brammer at work on 01785 276 221.
