Bike ride sponsor visits chosen charity to see valuable services first hand
Earlier this year, Mike Oliver took up the position of new chairman for the Greater Haywards Heath Bike Rider. In his newly appointed role he recently visited the Bike Ride’s chosen charity, the Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity (DVLCC).
The DVLCC helps children under the ago of five with cerebral palsy and other motor learning impairments to realise their full potential. The charity was created to give very special children a place where they can learn and thrive in a warm, supportive setting that understands their unique journey. Through its early intervention service and support network, the charity works alongside families to give their very young children the best possible start in life.
Pilar Cloud, Executive Manager, DVLCC, said, “We would like to thank the 2019 Greater Haywards Heath Bike Ride organisers for choosing Dame Vera Lynn Children’s Charity as this year’s charity beneficiary. This is our first opportunity to be involved with this outstanding event, and we are really looking forward to working with the organisers and cheering on all the participants this October as they cycle their chosen distance. We really appreciate that engagement with the event sponsors who are all so involved with our local community.”
The Greater Haywards Heath Bike Ride is now in its ninth year. This year it will take place on Sunday 13th October – switched from its previous place in the spring calendar to an autumn event. Once again this year, the race will see four routes with well-spaced comfort breaks, feed stations and entertainment on The Broadway to welcome home the riders. It’s tipped to be a challenging ride for serious riders, exhilarating for weekend riders and a great day out for the whole family. Organisers hope the race will build on its record total of over £16,000 for last year.
Mike Oliver, goes on to say, “cycling has always been a great passion of mine and this is a fantastic opportunity to combine one of my favourite hobbies with fundraising for this worthy cause.”
