Surrey Hills Bike Ride Team Raise in Excess of £4300!

Cycling enthusiasts and friends of the Starr Trust challenged themselves to a weekend of cycling to raise funds for us. Clocking up an impressive 150 miles over the two days, they raised an incredible £4300 between them, in aid of the Starr Trust.

Special thanks to The Implant Centre, Gardner & Scardifield who kindly supported the event.

Thanks also to Rob Scahill at Waitrose Brighton for donating all of the refreshments for the ride!

Taking part were (left to right in main photo);

Nick Childs from Appletree Nurseries, Sara Leatherland, Andrew Jeffery, Rex Yetton from The Implant Centre, Chris Gilkes, Mick Ince, Julie Ince, Jenny Seabrook and Sally Mcclusky.

This challenge marks the launch of our exciting overseas bike ride in France next year…
