Bill’s fundraiser for cancer mum

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CO­ME­DIAN Bill Bai­ley has be­gun a 100-mile cancer fundrais­ing walk along Bri­tain’s “old­est road” in mem­ory of his late mum.

The funny man, 53, is walk­ing The Ridge­way trail in trib­ute to “real life-force” mum Madryn – a for­mer nurse who died of bowel cancer in 2005.

A troupe of comics, in­clud­ing Jo Brand, Lee Mack and Kevin El­don, will join him on the six-day trek along the an­cient south­ern Eng­land path­way.

Bill said: “Mum was a huge per­son­al­ity. When cancer came call­ing it was dev­as­tat­ing. I miss her all the time.”
