Oban trio sad­dle up for char­ity

The Oban Times - - Community News -

THREE novice cy­clists from Oban will ride more than 100 miles in two gru­elling days to raise money for char­ity, start­ing on Septem­ber 10.

The trio, So­phie Han­d­ley, Mairi Kennedy and Sandie Duffy, who all work at es­tate agents, Bell In­gram in the town, have never set foot in a gym be­fore and have only just bought their bikes.

They will be rais­ing money for three char­i­ties close to their hearts; MS So­ci­ety, Ju­ve­nile Di­a­betes Re­search Foun­da­tion and Ar­gyll An- imal Aid. So­phie said: ‘This is def­i­nitely go­ing to be a huge chal­lenge for us, but we are de­ter­mined to suc­ceed for our cho­sen char­i­ties. MS So­ci­ety is par­tic­u­larly sig­nif­i­cant for me as my fa­ther is cur­rently liv­ing with MS and epilepsy. This is my way of giv­ing some­thing back. It’s go­ing to be painful, emo­tional, and ex­hil­a­rat­ing - all wrapped up in ly­cra.’
