An annual charity cycle event is set to be held at Lamport Hall for the first time this year.
Cycle 4 Cynthia, which has now raised more than £300,000 for The Friends of Cynthia Spencer Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support over the past decade, has been held at Althorp for the last three years but, this year, Lamport Hall will be the host venue.
The details were revealed at the launch event staged at Franklin’s Gardens, Northampton, where Saints players Christian Day and Sam Dickinson were on hand to present the trophies to the prize winners from last year’s ride and to hand over the cheque of almost £52,000 to the charities.
Sue Bownass, of the Friends of Cynthia Spencer Hospice, said: “On behalf of both Macmillan and the hospice I would like to say a massive thank you to all those fabulous riders who took part last year, to all the amazing volunteers who helped on the day and to our sponsors, who all played their part in raising such a wonderful sum of money which will enable our two charities to continue our valuable work.”
Cycle 4 Cynthia 2014, again offering five, 25 or 50-mile routes, is taking place on Sunday, September 21 at Lamport Hall. More information will be available shortly at www.cycle4cynthia.com.
