Reach For a Star (RFaS) and members from King’s Lynn Cycling Club presented Charlotte Ranger with her new bike. The cyclists raised £500 for Reach For a Star at their funday and BBQ in Tottenhill in September. RFaS chairman, James Lewis, said that “The timing of King’s Lynn Cycling Club’s donation to us couldn’t have been better, since we were already discussing the possibility of funding a bike for Charlotte to help with her physiotherapy.”
RFaS trustee Shareen Hannan added that “Thanks go to Tony Gostling from Surf 55 for all his helpful advice in supplying the most suitable bike for Charlotte, after speaking to her and her family, and for fitting all the accessories”.
