ON THE SPORTS SCENE Qtn cy­clists will sup­port hospice

Seven will help to pro­vide pal­lia­tive care Around the Greens


SEVEN Queen­stown cy­clists will join in a fundraiser in aid of St Bernard’s Hospice in the lat­ter or­gan­i­sa­tion’s an­nual cy­cle chal­lenge in Novem­ber.

This year more than 30 cy­clists will take to the roads from Queen­stown, East Lon­don and Port El­iz­a­beth to raise funds for the non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion with Owen Dicks, Greg Bax­ter, An­nel­ize Marais, Bren­dan Raasch, Deb­bie Love, Marc Bradley and An­drew Nel fly­ing the flag of the lo­cal cy­cling fra­ter­nity.

St Bernard’s Hospice pro­vides pal­lia­tive care to pa­tients di­ag­nosed with a life threat­en­ing ill­ness. Mar­ket­ing man­ager Trys­tan Haynes said, “St Bernard’s re­quires R5.5-mil­lion a year to pro­vide such ser­vices, and our tar­get for the Cy­cle Chal­lenge is R400 000.

“Th­ese funds en­able us to send car­ers and pro­fes­sional nurses into homes where fam­i­lies may be ad­vised and sup­ported, over and above the care and pain man­age­ment most of their pa­tients re­quire.”

The St Bernard’s Hospice Cy­cle Chal­lenge kicks off on Sun­day, Novem­ber 21, in Queen­stown, where 13 of the 33 cy­clists will take on the Su­per Hero Chal­lenge cy­cling 800km over six days in pur­suit of com­plet­ing the round trip from Queen­stown to Port El­iz­a­beth and back to East Lon­don over six con­sec­u­tive days.

Com­pa­nies and in­di­vid­u­als that wish to come on board in sup­port of the event, cy­clists and the cause may con­tact Haynes on (043) 721-0051. – Rep reporter So­cial bowls: J. Froy, M.
