Chiswick RNLI Crew To Swap Boats For Bikes
789 mile cycle ride aims to raise money for lifeboat charity
After the success of last year’s sponsored row the Chiswick and Teddington lifeboat crew's are going to make this year’s event Bigger, Better and Harder.
On the 28th of January 2011 the crew's intend to cycle on two exercise bikes for 32 hours, and in this time we are looking at cycling the combined distance from the Aith Lifeboat station in the Shetlands to St Helier Lifeboat station in the Channel islands which is a total of 768.72 miles. This year’s event will once again be held in the Bentalls shopping centre in Kingston-upon-Thames.
"We will have people collecting throughout the two days at the centre and we will also have Stormy Stan on hand for photos and children’s activities with a chance of winning your very own RNLI Helm cuddly toy," said crew member Martin Blaker-Rowe.
"So PLEASE dig deep this year and we look forward to seeing all of you who manage to come down to the centre to show your support. Lastly thank you all for your support and thank you so much for playing your part in saving lives without your donations we could not carry on saving lives."
