A team of 17 officers, from Staffordshire Police, has celebrated the successful completion of a 500 mile charity bicycle ride, from Blackpool Tower to the Eiffel Tower, by announcing that they have smashed their fundraising target.
Riders from the ‘Tower to Tower 500’ team (TT500) told guests at their ‘Wrap Party’, held at the Victoria On The Square public house, in Hanley, on Wednesday 7th October 2015, that they had raised an incredible £30,688 from their 6-day challenge.
And now the cash will be used to fund places on Caudwell Children’s annual ‘Destination Dreams’ holiday. The fully supported family trip to Disney World, in Florida, is arranged to give 25 children with life threatening illnesses a ‘Dream’ holiday.
Over the last four years the team has raised over £200,000 for Caudwell Children, through a number of boxing events and a Land’s End to John O’Groats bike ride. You can still donate to the TT500 team on their Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/teams/bobbiesonbikestt500
