Father's Day Ride for Prostate Cancer

 

On the lead up to Father Day this year Halstead Rotary club took part in the national ‘Rotary Ride’ event to raise support for Prostate Cancer UK, raising both funds and awareness to support the charity.

On Saturday they held a static bike challenge and an awareness display stand outside the Solar store in Halstead. Member of the public were invited to join in the fun and were challenged to ride for a set number of miles or set number of minutes in their fight against this terrible disease. Shoppers were also happy to get involved and contribute by making monetary donations in support of the riders. 

Halstead Rotarian Tony Sale who organised the event said he was delighted with how it went and pleased that people of all ages seemed very eager to get involved. He also emphasised that it was very much a community event and was grateful for the support of Lobb’s Cycles who provided the cycles and turbo trainers used.

Tony who is also a member of The Randonneurs Road Cycling club based in Coggershall also persuaded them to get involved and their club ride on father’s Day itself was dedicated to support Prostate Cancer UK

Together the two events raised £400 for the charity.
