Local Dads support their local children’s charity
On the weekend of 7th – 9th July, four Dads from Wrenbury cycled the iconic ‘Coast to Coast’ route from Workington in Cumbria to Sunderland, via the Lake District National Park and within view of Scarfell Pike, the highest mountain in England.
Tom Robinson, Oliver Caunce, Josh Walker and Scott Heirene, plus their support driver Scott Caunce, took on this incredible and gruelling challenge, following several months of training, which involved cycling 135 miles in 27-degree heat and climbing more than 10,000 ft, to help to raise funds for their local children’s charity. Together, the Wrenbury Dads have raised over £3000 for the Wingate Centre in Wrenbury, a charity devoted to brightening the lives of children with disabilities from the local area and beyond through respite holidays and sport and recreational activities.
Dad Tom said, “I am privileged to live in a village where the community pulls together to create very special moments in time to help great causes. One I couldn’t resist taking part in was to raise funds for the Wingate Centre, a truly incredible local Charity. The opportunities and support that they provide for children with disabilities are exceptional and we were very proud to be able to fundraise for such a worthy, local cause.”
Catherine Cook, the Wingate Centre’s Marketing and Fundraising Manager, said, “We are so very proud of our Wrenbury Dad’s for taking on and smashing this incredible endurance challenge to raise money to support children with disabilities. £3000 is a significant sum of money to us and without the support of people like our Wrenbury Dads we simply couldn’t continue to brighten the lives of children with disabilities. If you are up for a challenge and want to make a difference too, please get in touch today!”Return to news
