View’s T-shirt up for grabs

A T-shirt signed by Dundee band The View will go under the hammer this week to raise money for a charity cycle ride around Cuba.

Sisters Heather Judge (46) and Jackie Soutar (49) and their friend Rhonda Spence (40) will all take to the Cuban roads for the five-day, 230-mile cycle ride in November.

The framed T-shirt — a gift from Dundee slater and charity-fundraiser Charlie Kean — will be sold on Internet auction site eBay to finance the ride.

Mrs Judge said the women were keen to take on a new challenge after completing the Dundee Cyclathon in 2006.

“It’s just getting the sponsorship in now,” she said.

In order to take part in the Cuban event, each woman must raise £3000 for Women-for-Women — a charity which raises awareness and funds for the treatment of conditions that affect women and their babies including cancer, genetic diseases and stillbirth.

The online auction will open at 7.30 pm on Thursday and close on Sunday, April 27.

The T-shirt has a reserve price of £150.

Potential buyers should search the site for item number 110242618943 to make their bid.
