Pedal the Borders charity bike ride

Dear Blogger,

The way of sending out messages to the Mailing List by addressing them to `Dear name` has, on the whole, elimated BT from spitting back so many of what I send out - until I was stupid enough to forward an email from the Lingen Davies fundraiser!  Here it is again without her details.

Message forwarded by Colleen, West Felton Newsletter.

The Lingen Davies Cancer Fund, are hosting a cycling sportive for a third consecutive year this September and I wondered if we might be able to promote the event in your next distribution? Pedal the Borders offers three routes to choose from; 25km, 60km and 100km so it is an inclusive event for all types of cyclists. Children over the age of 12 can take part in 25km route as long as they are accompanied by an adult.  

All money raised from this event will go towards improving and enhancing cancer services in our region of Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales. Each year 4000 people are diagnosed with cancer in our region, Lingen Davies fund equipment and support services to make sure they receive the best possible treatment.

 Since our first event in 2021, we have raised over £70,000, and we want to continue to raise vital funds by getting as many people there as we can in 2023. We do have a small marketing budget for this event, if there is a cost involved in placing an advertisement but of course are very grateful for any discounts/charity rates you may be able to offer.
