IF you’re feeling sporty and inspired following a summer of Olympic activity, Demelza is giving you the chance to get a slice of the action.
#TeamDemelza has secured a number of charity places in this year’s London to Brighton Cycle Ride and is now looking for keen cyclists to saddle up and get on their bikes for the 54-mile challenge.
More than 3,000 people are expected to take part in this year’s ride, which takes place on Sunday September 11. Starting out from Clapham Common, it’s a chance for cyclists to hit the open road and blaze a trail through the Surrey countryside to the seaside in East Sussex!
Last year’s riders raised almost £5,000 for Demelza and events co-ordinator Emma Cox is hoping to top that target this time around.
She said: “We are so grateful the 38 people who chose to take part in the ride last year, many of whom have signed up again. However, we hope to welcome some new faces on board! Our riders come from all walks of life and have different reasons for taking on the challenge.”
Emma said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to spread awareness through the area where we provide care.”
Registration is £40 and entrants need to pledge to raise at least £100 in sponsorship. All participants will receive a free Demelza T-shirt.
