CYCLISTS are being reminded to sign up to the London to Brighton challenge to raise funds for Kemp Hospice.

The challenge will cover 54 miles, starting from Clapham Common, and will take place on Sunday, September 8.

Community fundraiser Samantha Howell said: “Although no previous experience is required, we have been encouraging our cyclists to prepare with a bit of light training to ensure they not only complete the ride, but that they have a thoroughly enjoyable time doing it.

"The spirit of the event is taking part not winning so they can cycle as fast or as slow as they wish.”

The sponsorship money raised will help provide support and care to patients, families and carers who are living with life-limiting illness and experiencing bereavement in Wyre Forest.
