Cyclists turn pink in aid of cancer unit
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
