Summerfield cyclists quintuple their target for Prostate Cancer UK

Seven keen Summerfield cyclists are taking part in the Great Exmoor Ride on 1st September.

The team have been practising for the arduous 66 miles across the moor. The route, from Taunton to Blue Anchor, offers spectacular views but at a cost – plenty of uphill climbs!

Simon Gamlin, speaking for the group, said:

“The team photo shows us in the pub because that’s where all good fund raising challenges spring from. It didn’t take us long to realise we needed to be serious and we have quickly moved on. We are training hard and swapped the cider for coffee and cake. All support for this great charity is greatly appreciated by us all.”

Simon added:

“We have a Team Just Giving Page which we set up at the start. It is going really well. We started with a target of £500 but due to fantastic support from so many kind supporters quickly surpassed this and we revised the target to £2000.”

As of 22 August, the JustGiving total stands at a magnificent £2,475, with more cash donations and sponsorship money yet to be added in! But the team don’t want to stop there: they will really appreciate any further contributions. To add your own donation please visit the team’s JustGiving page.
