On the 12th of April 2014, The Chain Reaction Cycling club completed an amazing 210 mile bike ride challenge, from Ilkeston to Mablethorpe, and back again! The group of 18 committed and hardworking cyclists, supported by local pub, The Three Horseshoes, completed the ride in great time and raised an exceptional £9,266.51!
At the beginning of the year, Tracey and Darren Parker planned to hold 10 fundraising events, with the aim of each one raising £1,000 – a total of £10,000 to mark the charity’s tenth year! But thanks to the outstanding efforts of the cycling crew and the wonderful donations and support from the community – they managed to raise almost enough to fulfil the whole year’s target.
We are extremely grateful for all of the efforts of everyone involved and their amazing contributions to our work, which all goes towards making the lives of the children we support a little bit brighter.
