The Leicester Diabetes Centre (via Leicester Hospitals Charities) will be one of the recipients of this year’s Leicester to Skegness Charity Cycle Ride. The annual Leicester to Skegness Charity Bike Ride will take place on Saturday 1st June 2013.
As there are many keen cyclists amongst our diabetes team - and perhaps amongst our friends - some of us might actually want to take part in the event.!! watch this space
The cycle ride has been taking place for over 10 years, and now has over 150 cyclists taking part. All abilities saddle up, from club cyclists to those who only go on a bike just for this event!
The aim this year is to raise at least £35,000, of which £15,000 will go towards funding a nurse at LOROS, with the balance being shared amongst 12 charities
Coping with Cancer
Child Victims of Crime in Leicestershire
Vista (support for blind people)
Adapt (support for parents with poorly babies)
Jasmine House (support for rape victims)
Parkinson’s UK Leicester
Clash (local branch of arthritis charity)
Prostaid (Local prostate cancer charity)
Fidds (swimming for the handicapped)
The Clinical Haematology Dept at the LRI
Age Concern Oadby & Wigston
The guideline for sponsorship is around £200 per person, so the organisers can reach their fundraising target, but there is no compulsory minimum amount to raise.
The ride will start from Leicester Clock Tower at 06.00. The route will be: Syston, Melton, Grantham, Boston then Skegness. Support vehicles will accompany the cyclists and carry bags. Refreshments will be available at various points and the major regrouping point will be the Roman Cafe which is approximately three miles past Grantham and is half way in terms of cycling effort.
