Junior members of Bradley Stoke’s TJ’s Netball Club staged a sponsored cycle ride earlier this week to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Club member Hayley Clements (27) was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer and is about to start a course of radiotheraphy following surgery. Throughout this difficult time, Hayley has received lots of advice, information and support from Macmillan.
The club wanted to say a big “Thank You” by raising money for the charity and about twenty senior members will be running in the Bristol 10k this Sunday (10th May).
Not to be outdone, junior members of the club too young to enter Sunday’s race took part in a sponsored bike ride along the traffic-free Bristol & Bath Railway Path.
The group started from the car park at Teewell Hill, Staple Hill, and cycled along the railway path towards Bath before turning back after about 10k.
Supporters of the club have set up a fundraising page on the Justgiving website, where donations can be made towards the target of raising £2,000 for the charity.
Following the Bristol 10k on Sunday, Bradley Stoke Town Council has given the club use of one of the rooms at the Baileys Court Activity Centre, where light refreshments will be served from 2pm onwards.
