Local Charities Get Physical: Bike Rides and Swimming Events

3 Great Local Charity Events:

Bike ride to raise money for Callums Wish To Walk

And

Two great swimming events to raise money for Percy Hedley Foundation

 

To make a donation please visit http://www.justgiving.com/teams/ReasontoRide

 

The idea of the event is to see how many miles the children of the North East can collectively swim in a week.  Giving them the experience of team spirit and encouraging each other to reach a common goal and raise money by being sponsored for their swimming efforts.  The organisers are asking all schools in the North East to allow children to participate in the event as part of their school swimming lessons during the week Monday 2nd – 8th July.

By participating the children will be supporting The Percy Hedley Foundation, a charity that does fantastic work in the North East supporting children and adults with cerebral palsy, communication difficulties and profound and multiple learning disabilities. For more information and a registration pack please go to www.percyhedley.org.uk
