THE fund to send a terminally ill Barnsley man to Las Vegas is set to be boosted by a fitness instructor who will raise money by cycling constantly for 12 hours.

Ben Gillott, 24, has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and told he only has one year to live.

To help give Ben the holiday of a lifetime with girlfriend Steph, instructor Matthew Kaye will take part in a spinathon at the Metrodome from 8am-8pm.

Matthew, 23, of Stairfoot, said: "I went to a fundraising auction at Barnsley Football Club where I met Ben and his family and heard about his terminal brain tumour.

"I really want to go the distance and help Ben and his family and brain tumour research. I have been touched with Ben's bravery and outlook on life."
