Listeners get inside track on charity tandem ride
June 30, 2017
Radio Clatterbridge listeners have had the inside track on a thousand-mile tandem ride for teenage cancer charities.
Debbie Edge came into the studio after successfully completing the challenge to cycle the length of the country with her friend while wearing tutus!
Regular listeners will have heard the updates as Debbie and pal Suzy Cramb cycled all the way from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
They decided to raise funds after Suzy’s 19 year old son was diagnosed with bone cancer two and a half years ago.
“Cancer shouldn’t happen to anybody but when it happens to a young person it’s really not on. As soon as Suzy’s son got cancer, it only seemed right that the charities he benefited from got massive support.” – Debbie Edge
The pair decided to stand out from the crowd by taking part in the ride dressed in tutus to keep up visibility for their fundraising.
Thanking everyone for their support, Debbie revealed how they raised £19,000 before they started with a series of preview events and have now doubled that figure.
