Cycle ride challenge raises cash for charity
MORE than 40 riders took on a 68-mile coastal cycle challenge in aid of charity.
Simon Tier from Fareham organised the ride on the Isle of Wight which raised over Â£2,500 for The Brain Tumour Research charity.
The 50-year-old said: '˜I set up the Brain Tumour Research Randonnee last year and this time round we had a fantastic ride in beautiful sunny conditions.
'˜My hope is to inspire others to help raise awareness for this awful disease, which has been so poorly funded for too long.'
Tim Green, communityÂ Â fundraising managerÂ for the Brain Tumour Research charity, said:Â '˜For too long, brain tumours have been a neglected cancer and we cannot allow this desperate situation to continue.
'˜We are extremely grateful to Simon and all the riders for their support and would like to encourage others to take part in this event in the future.'
