Cycle enthusiast, Sharon Crabbe is riding the Costa Rica Cycle Challenge in November to raise funds for Woman V Cancer, a special fundraising partnership between Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer trust.
This gruelling 360km coast-to-coast cycling challenge starts on the eastern Caribbean coast and finishes on the western Pacific coast. The challenge is not designed for Olympic athletes, rather for women who are looking for an amazing goal to train and get fit. Past rides have raised over £12 million for these three charities, and all funds raised for Women V Cancer are split equally between the three charities.
Don’t fancy it yourself?! No, me neither. I’m out of breath biking it down to the village shop and have reserved never to attempt it again, even if I am all out of Curly Wurlies. Here’s the thing though, you don’t need to don lyra to help out. Sharon needs some funding by August and therefore is hosting a Race & Gin night on July 5th at the Devizes Conservative Club.
You could join Sharon and Ewa for a wonderfully entertaining way to help raise funds, having fun at the same time. Have a win on the horses, with a special selection of gin cocktails, bar, and a buffet platter on each table. The races have been sponsored by local businesses, Sharon has some pretty neat prizes; vouchers for golf, a free MOT, Pizza Express Vouchers, Planks Farm, Jewellery, a Handbag, and more.
Doors open at 7:30, and Tickets are £10 per person. Go to the Facebook event page for Sharon’s bank details, as tickets paid in advance would be helpful. £10 advance tickets will include the buffet, or you can buy a ticket on the door for £7, without food provided.
Adverts & That!
