Salisbury Plain cycle trek to boost hospices
The Salisbury Plain Cycle Challenge will return again on October 20, with the money raised from this year’s event going towards Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices for children and young adults.
The challenge consists of three different courses to help cater for all participants, including a 20km route, a 60km route and a 100km trail, which extends all the way into Hungerford.
All of the money raised by cyclists will be donated to the hospices to help provide care and support for youngsters with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.
The routes commence at Wellington Academy and Sports Centre in Tidworth at 9am and cross Salisbury Plain – home of the iconic Stonehenge.
Nicole Denison, Naomi House’s events fundraiser, said: “We are looking forward to our 2013 event being even bigger and better.
“We can’t wait to welcome hundreds of cyclists to this a challenging but exciting day, which will no doubt help to raise significant amounts of money for an excellent cause.”
Refreshments will be available at the start and finish of each course, as well as at selected points along the two longer routes.
Registration costs £15 per person. There is also the option to register for a family ticket for the 20km ride, which costs £35 for two adults and two children. For more information, visit www.naomihouse.org.uk
