Neaves & Neat Sponsor Octagon Cycling Club’s Charity Challenge

We are thrilled to sponsor Octagon Cycling Club as they embark on their next big charity challenge.

On Saturday 30th June, the group of 50 cyclists will be cycling 200 miles in one day in aid of two charities close to our hearts – East Anglia Air Ambulance & Beads of Courage.

They will set off from Ely Cathedral at 4am and aim to return to the Cathedral by 8pm the same day. The ‘Double Ton’ will follow a route from Ely, through Swaffham, Cromer, Great Yarmouth, Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds before returning to Ely.

Octagon Cycling Club, raised over £14,000 in 2016 & £8000 for local charities during previous charity rides.  This year they’re aiming to raise over £10,000 to be shared between the two local charities.

Any individuals who wish to make a personal donation can do so through the Just Giving site

Wishing the club the best of luck in their training over June!
