Pedallers raise nearly �11,000 in three years
Axe Valley Pedallers raised �2,227.91 for charity on their Round the Block – Round the Clock 24 hour cycle event.
Axe Valley Pedallers raised �2,227.91 for charity on their Round the Block - Round the Clock 24 hour cycle event. They have just collected in the last of the sponsorship and are just delighted with the total figure. The money is to be divided equally between Devon Air Ambulance Trust and The Prostate Cancer Charity.
The cycle event was held during September when the Tour of Britain cycle race visited the town and proved to be a huge success. Three people managed to cycle over 200 miles during the 24-hour period, a terrific achievement and demonstration of endurance. In the fancy dress category first prize went to a brilliant and imaginative design by Lisa Gregory and Elsa Wood as a witch and her cat, together with broomsticks and cauldrons, who then went onto cycle the 5-mile circuit. Well done to them both and everyone who made the event such a success.
This latest charity event means that the club have raised almost �11,000 for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust over a three-year period. Not bad for a club that is not yet five years old.
Round the Block - Round the Clock charity cycle event, which was part of the Seaton Festival of Cycling, is going to take place again in September 2010. Details of the Axe Valley Pedallers can be found at www.axevalleypedallers.org.uk
