The first pay-out of proceeds from this year’s Burgess Hill Bike Ride took place recently at the Mid Sussex Golf Club.
Terry Eyres from the Sussex Heart Charity was presented with a cheque for £3,394. Cheques of £1,697 were presented to Lion President Christine Coxshaw and Rotarian President Jenny Theobald to be distributed to their local good causes.
“Providing funds for such worthy charities is very rewarding for us,” said Burgess Hill Bike Ride chairman Malcolm Stephens, “and I would like to thank all our entrants and supporters for making this possible.”
The Burgess Hill Bike Ride is jointly organised by the local Lions and Rotary Clubs. Next year’s Burgess Hill Bike Ride takes place on Sunday 5th June and will offer three new routes of 10, 20 and 40 miles through the Sussex countryside around Burgess Hill.
