Staines Informer - - FRONT PAGE -

THE owner of a Staines busi­ness is get­ting ready for a 60-mile cy­cling chal­lenge to raise money for the fight against prostate cancer.

Marvin Winthrop, of tailor­ing busi­ness The ZipYard, will set off from Lon­don to Ox­ford on June 26 for the Prostate Cancer Re­search Cen­tre.

Marvin said: “I was di­ag­nosed with prostate cancer over a year ago which has meant the past 12 months has been tough for my fam­ily and me. We’ve sol­diered on lead­ing our lives as nor­mally as we pos­si­bly can.

“I’ve car­ried on work­ing at The ZipYard in Staines and even bought a sec­ond ZipYard cen­tre in Bournemouth.”

Last year, Marvin joined thou­sands in the Palace to Palace Chal­lenge, cy­cling 45 miles from Buck­ing­ham Palace to Wind­sor Cas­tle.

He said: “I re­ally en­joyed the Palace to Palace chal­lenge and I’m pleased I’m in a po­si­tion where I can phys­i­cally still raise money for such a great cause.

“I’ve been train­ing hard for my up­com­ing cy­cle but I can’t wait to do it.”
