This year’s Ax-pedition money is shared between the Alzheimer’s Society and The Project

The third Ax-pedition Charity Cycle Sportive raised £1,600 to aid worthy causes.

This year’s event was again organised by the Rotary Club of Axminster in association with Axminster Tools and Machinery – the town’s biggest employer.

The money raised from the cycle ride, which took place in September, has been divided equally between the Alzheimer’s Society and The Project.

The Ax-pedition is not run for profit and over its first two years it raised more than £10,500 which has been shared between some amazing charities including Hospiscare and Exeter Leukaemia Fund.
