Clive gets on his bike for a good cause

On Saturday 5th October Clive Efford will be cycling the entire boundary of the Eltham Parliamentary constituency to mark Britain’s Personal Best Day and to help raise money for two fantastic charities, Demelza Children’s Hospice and the national cycling charity Wheels for Well Being. He will be accompanied on his road trip by keen cyclist Neil Robertson and other members of local cycle club First Edition Cycling.

Britain’s Personal Best (BPB) is a year-round programme that aims to inspire people to set themselves goals and potentially attract sponsorship to achieve those goals whilst raising money for their chosen charity.

Clive and the club riders will be setting off from the Cafe in Eltham South at 13.30 on Saturday morning and then cycling the boundary in a clockwise direction. The route altogether will be around 20 miles. If anyone wants to join in the ride they will be welcome – just be at the park by 13.30. Children though will have to wear a helmet and be accompanied by an adult.

If people want to donate to Demelza then they can do that through Clive’s JustGiving page http://www.justgiving.com/Clive-Efford-MP. Please donate something, no matter how small, as Demelza really is a fantastic charity providing an amazing service for sick children and their families.

If people want to donate to the cycling charity Wheels for Wellbeing then simply visit http://www.justgiving.com/Neil-Robertson-Limited-Direction-cycling.

Wheels for Wellbeing is another excellent charity that helps ensure that everyone can share in the joy and many benefits of cycling, regardless of any physical, health, mental or psychological barriers they may experience.
