Croston Velo Cycling Club raised almost £3,000 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, with members taking on a 60 or 30-mile challenge route.

Both routes started and finished at the clubs’ base, Croston Sports Club and each route was devised by member Tim Bryning. The club’s committee approved the fundraiser to show support for members affected by cancer in some way.

Club secretary Hannah Woodmansey explained: “We currently have around 120 members some of which have had cancer or have family and friends who have been or are being treated for the disease.”

“Just last year, our much loved and respected club member Lindsey Styler was diagnosed with breast cancer in the third trimester of her pregnancy with her second child. Lins is an absolute legend and throughout her treatment, she only missed two weeks off her bike, which is truly inspirational. Lins completed the 60-mile challenge route.”

Hannah also completed the 60-mile challenge route, she went on to say: “About 60 of our members did one or the other route and those unable to participate still supported the event by donating. There was a great positive vibe and lots of personal achievements with some club members completing their first ever 60-mile ride.”

Rosemere Cancer Foundation works to bring world class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria. The charity funds equipment, services and initiatives that the NHS cannot afford, helping to make patients’ cancer journey more effective, comfortable and stress-free.
