Round Table’s Fundraiser for Young Carers

Cirencester Round Table will be mounting their bikes to raise funds for Gloucestershire Young Carers this September.

Five of the members have committed to riding from Cirencester to Lands End in an attempt to raise much needed funds for the charity’s local support group for young carers.

The group have supported Gloucestershire Young Carers in the past and were keen to do something after presentations where they learnt about the challenges young carers face and of the work being done in Cirencester to support such young people.

Chair Adam Baggs says: “A team of five of us will be riding. It will be a tough challenge for some of us and we’ll be grateful to the support we’ll receive from other members of our club.”

Member Mark Halliwell said: “I drove the route with my family the other day and my children pointed out there is a lot of uphill cycling. But I’ll focus on the charity we’re cycling for.”

The challenge will take place from September 22 to 24th and the group can be supported at: http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/team/RTRiders
