St David’s Day Charity Dinner raises vital funds for Pedal Power
A St David’s Day charity dinner was held on Friday 28th February at Llyndir Hall Hotel, Rosset to support the all-ability cycling service Pedal Power run by the charity Cycling 4 All.
At the evening around 60 guests enjoyed a 3-course dinner, dancing, raffle and an auction resulting in £1,477 raised to keep the Pedal Power service running and to help toward the costs of regular maintenance and repair of the specially adapted bikes and trikes.
Peter Kennedy, Pedal Power Officer said, “The charity is delighted with the support we got from local businesses and the community, with wonderful auction and raffle prizes donated. The Sponsors of the evening included the West Cheshire & North Wales Chamber of Commerce, MTS Physchotherpy, Refurbs and Groundwork Training. We would like to thank them all for their generous support.”
“ A special thank you to Chris Grice who got into the spirit of the evening by spontaneously offering 2 Shooting Day experiences as auction prizes helping to raise even more for the charity”.
Cycling 4 all is a charity that provides unique cycling opportunities for everyone and receives no Government funding and needs to raise funds to survive. The service is based in Alyn Waters Country Park in Wrexham and has a fleet of standard and specialist bikes. There is a traffic-free cycle track around the park where customers can enjoy the benefits of cycling in a safe and secure environment. The variety of specialist bikes and trikes help people with different abilities and health conditions to exercise, achieve goals and have fun whilst doing it.
