Cy­clists turn pink in aid of can­cer unit

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - SOUNDS GOOD -

FACES were as pink as the T-shirts in a char­ity cy­cle race at the week­end to raise money for breast can­cer pa­tients.

More than 50 peo­ple took part in the pink cy­cle ride around Rom­ney Marsh on Sun­day.

The money raised will go to the Celia Blakey Unit at the William Har­vey Hospi­tal and the Bo­som Bud­dies sup­port group which is based there.

Cy­clists set off bright and early from Lathe Barn Tea­rooms, in Don­key Street, Bur­marsh, and trav­elled through Lydd and back.

Breast can­cer nurse Rhonda Barnes said: “The event went well and there were a large num­ber of chil­dren.

“The day started out a lit­tle damp but that didn’t put off the cy­clists and ev­ery­one en­joyed it.

“We would like to thank Lathe Barn and the Ro­tary Club for their sup­port, and all those who took part.”

Rosa Luetch­ford, 11, from Lydd, was the first girl past the fin­ish line, and Adam Faiers, 11, from Wood­church, was the first boy. More than 50 peo­ple took part
