Memo­rial ride hon­ours brave Liam

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

The an­nual Liam Prid­more Memo­rial Cy­cle Ride takes place this year on Septem­ber 3 at the Golden Pheas­ant in Etton.

The Com­mit­tee that or­gan­ise the event have been work­ing hard to make this year’s ride as suc­cess­ful as the last few years.

The event is named af­ter Liam Prid­more, from Glin­ton, who died from a form of ag­gres­sive brain tu­mour in April 2012, aged just 13.

Since this point the event has been held in his name and has raised in ex­cess of £25,000 for lo­cal and na­tion- al char­i­ties.

The day con­sists of three cy­cle rides to suit all ages and abil­i­ties. There is a 60-mile Sportive Ride and a 25 and 5mile ride for the more leisurely rid­ers and chil­dren.

En­ter­tain­ment fea­tures through­out the day from The Soul Run­ners and the Liquor & Poker Blues Band plus other lo­cal acous­tic acts, along with a BBQ and a premium raf­fle tak­ing place in the evening.

As well as The Brain Tu­mour Char­ity, this year’s ride is also rais­ing funds for Ge­orge Robin­son from Stam­ford, who suf­fered se­ri­ous spinal in­juries in July 2015 play­ing rugby for Stam­ford School.

The team are hop­ing to do­nate funds to help to­wards the pur­chase of an All-Ter­rain Wheel­chair.

Along­side Ge­orge, the or­gan­is­ers are also rais­ing funds for the East Anglia Air Am­bu­lance in light of the ex­cel­lent sup­port given to Chris Fitzjohn from Maxey. Chris was in­volved in a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent at the be­gin­ning of 2016 and was air-lifted from the scene. Full de­tails of their sto­ries, the char­i­ties in­volved, on­line do­na­tions and de­tails of the day it­self can be found at www.liamride.com.

Reg­is­tra­tion for the rides will be open at The Golden Pheas­ant, Etton, from 9.30am un­til 12 noon and rid­ers can start at their leisure.
