Funeral of Johnny Helms on Friday

THE funeral of cycling cartoonist Johnny Helms, who died last week aged 85, will be on Friday, November 13,  at 9.45am, at St Lukes Church, Farnworth, Widnes, Cheshire.
A service at Widnes Crematorium will follow.
Helms’ well-loved cartoons were illustrated in Cycling Weekly for over 63 years,  a record breaking run unequalled in IPC Media, and most likely in British publishing history.
He overtook cycling illustrator Frank Patterson’s 58-year record in 2004, an achievement Helms was extremely proud of.
An obituary is published in Thursday’s issue of Cycling Weekly.
