Charity bike ride set to double its money

Kitted out and ready to go. Some of the cyclists taking part in 'Club Together' 2017

Cycling enthusiasts and rugby fans are joining forces to raise money for local charities by cycling over 320 miles and visiting every rugby club in Norfolk next month.

The three-day event will see half the money raised going to children’s rugby charity Wooden Spoon, the rest will go to charities chosen by the rugby clubs. All of the money will go to good causes in the county.

The ‘Club Together 2017’ event has three core aims, to raise a life changing amount of money for community based charities , create friendship and foster camaraderie across the Norfolk rugby community and promote healthy lifestyles.

90 riders have already signed up for the event.

The initial target was £50k but support has been overwhelming and it is now hoped the ride will raise £100k. It takes place from the 8th to 10th September.
