Pedal power will give Sue Ryder a lift

KEEN cyclists are being encouraged to take part in a special fundraising bike ride next month.

Starting and finishing at Sue Ryder Nettlebed there are three routes for people to tackle: 10 miles, 25 miles and 60 miles. Each route will offer breathtaking panoramic views around the Chilterns. Sue Ryder is encouraging companies to take part, get fit and have fun. There will also be the chance to win trophies, which will be awards to the highest fundraising individuals and corporate teams. Entrants are asked to raise a minimum of £100 for Sue Ryder, which will cover the daily cost of a nurse. All money raised will help Sue Ryder continue providing their care to patients with incurable illnesses within the Berks, Bucks and Oxon, specifically to its Hospice services in Nettlebed and Reading, along with its Day Care Therapy units in both Wokingham and Newbury.Non-cyclists are invited to come along and marshall, hand out medals or cheer along those taking part. To add to the fun, Sue Ryder is organising live music and a barbecue. It all takes place on Sunday, May 12.
