ABOUT 100 motorcyclists will gather on Sunday for a ride to raise awareness of a rare childhood cancer.
Ian Biederman will be leading the group around the east coast to celebrate the life of his niece Molly, who died of Wilms disease last year.
Mr Biederman, owner of ART motorcycle centre, in Kneesworth Street, Royston, said: "I decided to do a ride and just invited everyone to come along.
"About 100 people should be coming and if each gives a £10 donation I'm hoping we can raise £1,000."
The group will be riding from Royston to Great Yarmouth and then on to Hunstanton.
The money raised will help to increase awareness of Wilms Tumour and fund research into the disease.

Molly Biederman was almost four when she was diagnosed with Wilms' tumour, a type of kidney cancer mainly affecting children under five.
For 14 months she endured chemotherapy and extensive surgery, but when she fell ill on Boxing Day 2006 it was found that the cancer had spread. Molly died on December 30.
Mr Biederman said: "Molly was such a character, everyone loved her."
Riders will be meeting at Royston Tesco on Sunday at 9.30am.
