THREE firefighters who live in Huddersfield are switching to pedal power for a good cause.
Adrian Bamforth, Andy Clarke and Fitz Harriott are part of a dozen-strong squad from Odsal fire station at Bradford taking part in a charity tandem ride.
The men, who are part of Blue Watch, aim to visit all the 48 fire stations in West Yorkshire during the ride.
It starts and finishes at the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service HQ at Birkenshaw.
They will set off on Saturday, April 21, and aim to finish 20 hours later, with each tandem visiting a couple of stations each.
They are aiming to raise £10,000 for Yorkshire Cancer Research and the National Fire Service Benevolent Fund.
The event has been organised by Blue Watch Manager Richard Hall.
His brother-in-law, Phil Ramsden, Watch Manager for Red Watch, lost his wife, Trudy, to a brain tumour in December.
She was 46 and had only been diagnosed with an aggressive tumour two weeks before.
She had worked in the control room at the headquarters for 28 years.
Adrian Bamforth said: "We are hoping to raise as much money as possible in memory of Trudy.
It should be a great experience."
The team are now looking for major sponsorship from a local firm.
Anyone who can help should phone Richard Hall or station clerk Sheelagh Parayazani on 01274 677916.
