Mirabilis artist Leo Hartas has signed up to do a 100 mile cycle ride in a day in aid of Devon-based chartity Force Cancer.
"Yes! It’s stupid!" he admits, but "It is for a good cause."
If you' like to sponsor Leo on line go to Just Giving - http://www.justgiving.com/Leo-Hartas.
"I've had so many donations that my initial target of £100 was whizzed past faster than a tortoise on a race bike," he reveals. "I've now upped the target to £200!
"Thank you so much for your donations, and there's still plenty of time to give to this great charity."
Based in Exeter, the FORCE Cancer Charity has played a vital role in local cancer services for nearly 25 years. It holds the belief that anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support close to home.
Their work finances improvements in patient care through research, the purchase of advanced equipment and their Cancer Support and Information Centre located in the grounds of the RD&E Hospital.
Mirabilis: Year of Wonders Volume 1 was solicited by Diamond (Order Code FEB111949), joining Keith Page and Stephen Walsh's Iron Moon title as the first graphic album projects from the British comics company Print Media Productions. Both albums will be re-solicited in July Previews.
