Plans for the biggest-ever Tour de Bridlington will come to fruition on 29th June at Headlands School.
Organisers are hoping to break through the £50,000 raised over the last four years, and all of the money raised will go directly to local community groups and charities.
Organiser David Stamper urged more people to turn up to the school and enjoy the day which is packed with events, stalls, and displays, as well as the cycling and running events.
Said David: “The Heart Screening Day group are very busy with lots of exciting plans for the day. Not only are they all in training for the bike ride and 10k run, they have also planned a football match in memory of local man Kevin Alderslade. They have teamed up with Bridlington Bay Bowling Club as well to demonstrate the use of a defibrillator which anyone can use to potentially save a life. The Fire Brigade will also be joining in the fund raising efforts as they will be getting on their exercise bikes on the day while on duty.”
Added David: “Money and support has been coming in and a big thank you to our sponsors: Lloyd Dowson, Pallet Track, Morrisons Community, Bridlington Town Council, Thompsons Global Logistics, Ship Inn Sewerby, AB Graphic, Bridlington Echo, The Property Shop and Bridlington Round Table.’
