Wheely top charity ride
9:38am Thursday 25th October 2012 in Local news
Wheely good efforts by three friends have raised thousands of pounds for charity.
Andy Rhodes, 24, along with Chris Quaife and Ben Button, both 36, completed a 50-mile sponsored cycle ride, raising £4,300, which will be split between The Stroke Association and Diabetes UK charities.
The causes are close to the trio’s hearts as Mr Rhodes suffered a massive stroke earlier this year and Mr Quaife has suffered with Type 1 diabetes most of his life.
The group finished their cycle at Ilkley Cricket Club. With further pledges still to be collected, the group believe the total amount could top £5,000.
