Croston Velo are holding their first Charity bike ride in aid of a local Mawdesley based charity Rainbow House. The ride was the proposed by departing chairman Glen Higson as a way of us giving a little back to the communities in which we live. Alot of hard work has gone into the arrangements and liasing with the charity from Kerry Rigby and John Decamp.
The ride is on Saturday 15th September and there will be both a 100km and 100 mile route (to be announced shortly) starting and finishing at Rainbow House, hopefully there should be a ride for everyone that is enough to be regarded as a challenge but within your reach. For the first edition the ride is members only but this may well expand in the future.
Rainbow house is a purpose built charity which focuses on children born with neurological damage, these children learn, develop and grow with the support and dedication from rainbow house. Anything we can raise can help towards resources/equipment and much more. Anything you can donate no matter how small really does make the world of difference. Rainbow House receive no public funding and rely totally on donations.
To register we ask that you donate £20 to the charity on the following link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/crostonvelorainbowride
If you wish to raise funds in support of the excellent work this charity does there is a Croston Velo page which you can share with friends and family (people are welcome to set up their own individually if they prefer but we felt this was the easiest option)
There will be a short presentation from Rainbow House at the BBQ to talk about the work that they do in our communities.
This should be a great event for a great cause. Please get behind it if you can.
