FAMILY and friends will get physical this weekend to boost the appeal to help Skipton youngster Connor Wrighton to see.

They will be cycling coast-to-coast, rowing the Leeds-Liverpool canal and running a marathon - in the foyer of Skipton's Tesco store.

Using an exercise bike, a treadmill and a rowing machine, they will cover a combined total of almost 300 miles on Saturday and Sunday, starting at around 10am on both days.

The money will help to fund pioneering stem cell treatment which could give sight to eight-month-old Connor, who doctors think has been blind from birth.
