Members of churches covering Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough, will be tackling a coast-to-coast bike ride to help victims of Nepal’s earthquakes.

A number of members of the Adventist Churches of the towns will be climbing onto their bikes for the four day challenge.

The team will leave Stockport on Sunday, May 24, and plan to arrive in Skegness on Wednesday, May 27.

They are being supported by Stanborough Press and the Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Pastor Andrew Rashford-Hewitt said: “There’s a number of local people taking part. We’ve got an elderly gentleman from Kettering who will be driving the support vehicle; and there’s two children who will be cycleing seven to 10 miles each day, rather than doing the whole leg.

“We’re raising money for those affected by the recent earthquakes in Nepal, the money goes to the charity ADRA-UK, which then directs it to those who need it in Nepal to help those who are now homeless and desperately in need.

“The team of cyclists has 11 members, five of which are from the local area.

“We’ve got a target of £3,000 to £5,000 to raise.”
