A LEUKAEMIA survivor is set to cycle over 500 miles to meet the donor who saved his life.
Bromsgrove resident is one of a team of six riding from Birmingham to Germany to raise money for charities Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, Anthony Nolan and Bpositive.
The Hero of Hamelin challenge will begin on September 6 at the Queen Elizabeth, more than seven years on from the stem cell transplant which took place at the hospital.
Jonjo said: "This idea has been in my mind for a few years now, so to see it turned into a reality is both nerve-racking and exciting. This ride represents my small way of saying thank you to the person who saved my life - my donor, my hero from Hamelin.
"No amount of miles cycled could ever match what he has done for me but I know I had to do something."
