A Glasgow man will be taking on a stadium cycling challenge for charity this month. 

John Gibson, from Shettleston will be completing a 120-mile cycle for the Beatson Cancer Charity.

The 34-year-old will start at Easter Road, before cycling to Tynecastle, through to Celtic Park, Ibrox and then finishing at Hampden stadium. 

John has decided to take on the challenge after having lost family members to cancer and as his friend is currently being treated for the illness by Beatson.

Speaking on the challenge to come, John said: "I've lost two family members through cancer. My friends have also lost family members following a cancer diagnosis after they were treated at The Beatson. 

"The staff at The Beaton help everyone – everyone at the hospital was so helpful and always going that extra mile to make them feel comfortable. 

"A friend who is currently being treated for cancer at the hospital can't praise everyone enough - I've visited my friend and the hospital is amazing, as are the staff.  

"Seeing what this hospital does and how important it is to everyone makes me want to try give a little back for everything they are doing just now for my friend.

"My hopes for the day are to get a good sunny day, raise as much as possible for Beatson Cancer Charity and just say thank you for what they have done in the past and present for my friend.  

"I'm sure everyone knows someone who has used The Beatson and they deserve a lot more credit than what they’re given. 

"Hopefully doing this challenge will urge others who have used the hospital to raise money for a great place."
