A BUSINESSWOMAN from Malvern is rallying her local community to support her during a physical fitness challenge to mark her 60th birthday.

Felicity Siviter, co-owner of the jeweller Parrys of Malvern, hopes to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support with a 60-mile rowing, running and cycling challenge at her gym, The Malvern in Grovewood Road.

Mrs Siviter hopes to complete the challenge in three days, and was due to begin yesterday (Thursday, May 1)

She said: “I'm not particularly sporty but have been getting a bit fitter recently at the gym."

All the money raised will be donated to help Macmillan Cancer Support to provide practical, medical, financial and emotional support for people affected by cancer.

These services include information and counselling centres, specialist medical staff and grants for people with cancer who are in financial difficulty.
