Festive charity bike ride raised cash for Samaritans
5:02pm Wednesday 11th December 2013 in News
A SWARM of Santas saddled up to take part in a festive fundraiser for the Samaritans.
More than 50 members of the Wollaston cycling club, Stourbug, dressed up as Father Christmas, elves and reindeer for the annual Santa Ride on Saturday December 7.
After setting off from Mary Steven's Park, Stourbridge, the riders took different routes, depending on ability, covered between 15 and 20 miles as they headed for The Island Pool pub in Cookley for a well deserved carvery.
With full bellies, they cycled another five miles back to the park, rattling their collection tins along the way.
Event organiser, Andy Glazzard, said: "It went really well and everyone enjoyed it. We haven't got a final total yet but I expect we will have raised over £200."
