Riding in honour of daughter
A KINGSKERSWELL dad has helped raise more than £4,000 for children's cancer charities in honour of his daughter.
Phillip Butterfield, 46, joined a team of cyclists journeying from Land's End to John O'Groats.
The painter and decorator (pictured) was riding in honour of his 11-year-old daughter Miah, who was diagnosed with Ewings sarcoma two years ago.
The money raised will go to Richard's Wish and Exeter oncology department.

Phillip said: "Miah currently has limited use of her arm but this has not stopped her doing everyday things that children do, she has learnt to swim and cycle all over again."
Phillip has previously completed a skydive, abseil and sponsored walk for cancer charities.
He said: "I love cycling and this seemed the next challenge to raise money to help others."
Phillip was joined by Kenny Corrick, 31, a carpenter in Exmouth, Andy Miller, 30, a farmer from Galashiels in Scotland and support driver Ben Wright, a 25 year-old an electrician from Exmouth.
