Pedal pals to raise cash for hos­pice

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Yourviews -

● TEN cy­clists from Widnes and Run­corn as well as Liver­pool are to ride 250 miles to raise cash for Hal­ton Haven.

The group has pre­vi­ously com­pleted other cy­cling feats in aid of Wil­low­brook hos­pice and Alder Hey Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal.

Their up­com­ing route will take place in North Wales, start­ing to­mor­row on June 15 and head­ing to Llan­dudno and An­gle­sey be­fore re­turn­ing to Ch­ester where they will catch their breath and a train back to Liver­pool.

They are also to raf­fle off a ham­per and raise cash with col­lec­tion tubs in a neigh­bour­hood shop.

The ride is ded­i­cated to one of the rid­ers’ moth­ers who has passed away.

Tony Walker, par­tic­i­pat- ing cy­clist, said: “Through our rid­ing we can give some­thing back to a cause both my­self and my fam­ily hold dear af­ter we lost our mum five years ago.

“She was cared for by Hal­ton Haven’s won­der­ful team.”

Faye O’Neill, Hal­ton Haven Hos­pice fundraiser, said: “We are in­cred­i­bly grate­ful to Tony and the rest of the cy­cle group for choos­ing to sup­port Hal­ton Haven through their an­nual ride this year. We are blown away by the ef­fort the group has put into rais­ing vi­tal funds for the hos­pice.

“It’s an inspiring challenge and we wish them the very best for a safe and en­joy­able trip.”
