Children in Need Collection 2021

Rutherford, supporting 2021 Children in Need, raised over £3,700 with a Sponsored Cycle Ride

Pudsey Cycle

Rutherford took to the saddle once again to raise money for Children in Need 2021 following the success of last year’s fundraising and cycle tour of members’ homes. This year the format changed slightly with the cyclists split into four groups to complete the challenge of visiting all Club members in one day. 

Each team of cyclists was ably led by an appointed captain who fine-tuned their route. Once again Simon Durrant set up a JustGiving page and away we went!




Team South (pictured above visiting Trevor Chapman) led by David Munro contained President Peter Northmore and the evergreen George Fisher; Team Southwest was ably orchestrated by the Senior Vice President Richard Scurr counting in Bob Tydeman and the Treasurer Steve Gardner, with friends of Richard’s, Keith Thomson and Tim Arthur, also powering the peloton; Team Northeast were jollied along by Colin Chrebelski with Guy  Turvill and Michael Hellowell happily in tow, and the North and West of the city left for the author and Simon to sweep through.  Meanwhile, David Hervey-Murray had taken to the saddle in California to do a section beside Highway #1 while visiting son Ben and his wife.


Each group planned their route, and was tasked to finish at The Old Spring pub off Chesterton Road by 1pm, which they achieved.


The ride was a great success, with near perfect conditions for November, and all riders happy with their accomplishment.  


Thanks go to Colin and Simon for much of the organisation, and to all members, friends and contacts who donated to Children in Need via the JustGiving site.  


As at 3 December 2021 £3,714 had been raised including Gift Aid, with a little more expected over coming days.
