A BARRY dad will begin his John O’Groats to Land’s End cycle challenge today to secure his son’s walking future.

Dad-of-two Gareth Stephenson begins pedalling to raise cash for two-year-old Noah who, aged months, contracted meningitis and had to have his lower left leg amputated to enable him to fight the virus.

The 35-year-old will be joined by Steve Lloyd, 37, of Barry, Dafydd Beasley, 35, Jason Shears, 39, and Dan Wood, 32.

The money will go into a fund to buy any prosthetic legs and treatment that may not be funded on the NHS.

The team hope to complete the challenge by September 13.
