Carole Slaughter, head of fundraising at Big C, said, “It is our first outdoor fundraising event since the outbreak of coronavirus and it will be raising all important funds for the charity, especially given that we have missed out on so many opportunities this summer where vital funds would have been raised to help those in our community affected by cancer.

“Many people have rekindled or found a new love for cycling during lockdown and we’d urge all keen cyclists old and new to come and enjoy a wonderful bike ride whilst raising money for a very good cause.”
