A Gravesend woman is jumping on her bicycle to ride 400km across Cuba in memory of her mother who died of breast cancer.

Tracey Siggers, 51, of Kitchener Avenue, is raising money for Women v Cancer which supports Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action.

“I need to raise a minimum of £3,000 to support the three charities and I need local people and businesses to support me,” said Tracey.

She is part of a group of women tackling the fourth Women v Cancer challenge and fundraisers of all ages will be taking part in the ride across the Caribbean country.

Tracey’s mother Ann died 14 years ago at the age of 58 and donations are already pouring in to support her efforts.

The challenge will take between May 1 and 9.
