A team of cyclists who took on a marathon challenge to raise money for a toddler fighting cancer have raised more than £10,000.
Harry Deeba, two, has been battling stage four high risk neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system, and his parents are hoping that a vaccine in New York will stop it from returning. If it returns there is a one in 10 survival rate.
The cyclists from Drayton Insurance Services rode from London to Brussels for the Taverham toddler.
The £10,000 will go towards funding the treatment which costs £239,000.
Harry’s mother, Carly Howes, worked at the insurance company but left five years ago to have her second child Isobel.
The group set-off on Friday, March 22, and completed the challenge by March 24.
So far Harry’s family have raised more than £100,000 towards their goal.
