MIDDLESBROUGH ERIMUS ROTARY
MAJOR FUND-RAISING OPPORTUNITY FOR LOCAL CHARITIES
Recent times have been extremely difficult for all Charities who rely heavily on fund-raising to support their activities. We in Rotary have been regularly frustrated when we have had to cancel planned events due to Covid restrictions and we know that many charities are struggling due to very limited opportunities to raise funds.
Thankfully we can now look forward with some optimism and we plan to build on an idea, piloted last year, which can benefit many local charities. We plan to repeat our Rotary Ride in October this year at Middlesbrough Sports Village. The event will take place on October 9th 2022 on the Cycle Track at Sports Village, accessed off Ladgate Lane, Marton. This is a tarmacked track approximately 5m wide and 1Km in length. It is secure and safe for all ages.
Our plan is to organise a sponsored bike ride for groups and families. We expect that all participants will obtain sponsorship. We intend to offer local charities the opportunity to provide entries and in return they will retain all the sponsorship proceeds from their own supporters.
In short we will organise the event, you will encourage your supporters to take part and funds you raise will go directly to your charity.
Individual Rotary clubs will be entering teams and all proceeds they raise will go to supporting prostate cancer research and treatment in this area. This event is part of an annual nationwide cycle weekend raising funds for that cause.
In the hope that you might appreciate this opportunity we are attaching a copy of our entry form.
With Very Best Wishes from all Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary Members.
