Portadown Football Club fan Rodney Leiper has set his sights on another fundraiser.

Past projects in aid of charity have included a Portadown FC tattoo and cycle around various football grounds.

Now Leiper wants to cycle around every county in Ulster during a five-day challenge which will cover around 420 miles.

The April event will take place in aid of Armagh-based Acorns For Autism.

“The Acorns For Autism plan is to build a sensory playpark, creating a safe and enjoyable environment, including a toddlers’ play area, vegetable patch, enclosed retreat and outdoor cinema,” said Leiper. “This cycle challenge will start from Portadown, covering an average of 85 miles each day.”
