Combined pedal power raises £4,500 for charity
6:00pm Saturday 28th September 2013 in News
MORE than 170 cyclists braved the autumn showers to tackle The Ellipse – one of the region’s premier charity bike rides.
The event, which was organised by leading property company, Bruntwood, raised more than £4,500 for The Bruntwood Charity, which supports causes including Onside North West and The Factory Youth Zone.
The fifth annual charity race saw cyclists tackle one of three routes, all of which began and ended in the grounds of Bruntwood’s historic Booths Park in Knutsford.
Peter Crowther of Bruntwood said: “The fifth annual Ellipse race was a phenomenal success, and we had more people than ever register for the event.
“We are delighted to have raised such a huge amount for local charities – not only from the sponsorship, but also from monies raised by the raffle, stalls and fun fair games.
“We would like to say a massive thank you to all those who turned out to take part in the ride, or to support friends and family.
“It was a fantastic day in which we were all able to enjoy the stunning Cheshire countryside, whilst doing our bit for good causes.” Younger visitors to Booths Park enjoyed fairground games including hook-a-duck, coconut shy and a teacup ride.
