£1024 Raised for Lindsey Lodge Hospice

A cheque has been presented to Vivian Vincent of Lindsey Lodge for £1024 from a number of Lincsquad representatives which was raised earlier this year from the North Lincs CycloSportive with over 140 cyclists taking part.

A big massive thanks has to go to Matt Porter who was the lead organiser for the event and also to all the volunteers who helped to make it happen on the day.

The 2011 CycloSportive chose Lindsey Lodge Hospice as the nominated charity. Lindsey Lodge Hospice offers very special care for people in the North Lincolnshire area living with life-limiting conditions such as cancer, multiple sclerosis and motor neurone disease. Lindsey Lodge HospiceEvery year hundreds of patients and their loved ones benefit from the care and support that they provide free of charge.

The sportive is basically a long cycle ride with the useful addition of a map and directions. The ride set off from the Ancholme Leisure Centre and riders chose either the full 100 miles or the 100 km route.

Keep an eye on the website for details of the 2012 Sportive, coming soon.

Thanks to all the cyclists who took part and helped to raise the money for Lindsey Lodge Hospice.
