Swaffham's eight-hour bike ride in aid of brain tumour research
Members of a community group showed their endurance as they pedalled many miles between them for a vital cause.
A team from Swaffham and District Lions completed an eight-hour static bike ride for the Lions Brain Tumour Research Campaign on Friday.
The public were able to donate their loose change as the active participants pedalled furiously in Swaffham's market place outside the Assembly Rooms.
More than £700 was raised through the challenge, which included raffling a special cake donated by Jennifer Stride of Frosted with the charity’s logo on the top. Mrs Stride also got the bike ride underway on Friday.
This was the final part of the Lions' fundraising for the charity.
As part of the fundraising campaign, the Lions' endeavours have included selling surplus items on the internet and a bucket collection in four local food outlets during the Eat Out to Help Out campaign.
A total of more than £1,000 has been raised for the charity.
It will help fund research at the charity’s network of Brain Tumour Research centres in the UK. It will also support the charity’s campaign for the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumours research to speed up new treatments.
