Four cyclists from Ashfield Rugby Club intend to raise £20,000 for a very good cause during a 1,000 mile bike ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
Sales Director Les Littlewood and four other cyclists will be donning their Lycra and taking to the road on 2nd August.
The marathon effort is in aid of First Point, an East Midlands based voluntary organization focused on developing disaffected children and young adults, by rewarding them for their participation in a host of outdoor, team and sport related activities.
Les said: “Through my involvement with the club, I have long been a passionate supporter of First Point and the work they do with disadvantaged children and young adults, who through no fault of their own haven’t been given the best start in life. These young people often find everyday activities such as simply going to school or college a real challenge.
“It is imperative that this work continues to help provide a better start.”
