A CYCLING duo will be putting pedal power to the test as they embark on a four-day journey from London to Paris.
Jo Cumming and Corinne Shakespeare are hoping to cycle the 300 miles and raise £3,000 along the way for Bike4Cancer, a charity which supports those suffering from the disease and their families.
Ahead of the challenge in April, the pair are organising a Wheelie Crazy Bash evening at Feckenham Village Hall on Saturday, March 22. Five musicians from the area will be taking to the stage alongside a two-course dinner and live auction featuring prizes such as a hotel break, signed Villa merchandise and a limited-edition signed rugby item.
Jo said: “After losing my mom very suddenly to cancer three years ago I wanted to do something to help others in a similar situation. It’s hard to explain to someone just how difficult it is to watch a loved one suffer this disease, especially at the final stages.
“This is why we chose this particular charity - we want to help families living with cancer really benefit from care and support.”
Corinne added: “I am not very fit so it will be a challenge and a huge personal achievement, but we are very motivated to raise money for Bike4Cancer.
“Everyone I know has been affected in some way by cancer. The funds raised from this challenge will help support others in difficult circumstances as a direct result of this nasty disease.”
To reserve £15 tickets for the Wheelie Crazy Bash, contact Jo on 07814 414288 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Corinne on 07884 002655. Visit www.wheeliecrazy.co.uk for more information about the challenge. The pair are also appealing for donations of bottles of wine for the Bash.
