Peaty said ‘We are specifically raising money for the teenage cancer unit this year which I have visited on numerous occasions. There’s nothing more motivating than seeing how strong the kids are on that ward fighting their illnesses. It certainly puts things into perspective. We’re hoping somebody comes in with a generous offer to boost our overall total. Get in on the bidding action!’

Anyone with questions or a bid should send an email to the following address with the title ‘WW2009 Bike Frame’ to -
