MOTORCYCLIST Ian Biederman is calling on other riders to join him on a charity ride to celebrate the life of his niece.

Mr Biederman's niece, Molly Biederman, died in 2006 of Wilms disease, a rare form of childhood cancer. Since then he has raised more than £21,000 for the Molly Biederman Wilms Tumour Foundation, which will be used to fund research into the disease.

The ride to Hunstanton will take place on Sunday, May 25.

He said: "We'll be riding out from Royston to Wells-next-to-Sea and then onto Hunstanton along the costal road.

"It should be a nice ride and I'd like to see as many people join us as possible."

Mr Biederman continued: "A Wilms's tumour is a type of kidney cancer which mainly affects children under the age of five.

"Molly bravely endured chemotherapy and extensive surgery, but wasn't able to survive. We want to help others beat the disease," he said.

A similar ride took place last year and raised more than £1,000.

Mr Biederman, who runs the ART motorcycle training centre in Royston, said: "The weather was absolutely horrendous last year, but we still had 12 hardy souls taking part. I hope we can top that this year."

All motorcyclists can to join the ride, which will begin at 9.30am on Sunday, May 25 at Royston Tesco. The suggested donation is £10 a head, and can be made directly to the charity at www.justgiving.com/wecanbeatwilms.
