TWO teams of super fit cyclists took to the saddle to raise cash for The Moira Fund.
A group from the Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) of Police Scotland went pedal-to-pedal with a team of personal trainers from PureGym. Two relay teams of four pedalled for a gruelling six hours to try to rack up the most miles. The VRU were declared winners.
However Bea Jones of the Moira Fund said: "I know that we are the real winners because not only did the teams raise a wonderful £600 in sponsorship, they have vowed to do it all again next year, to make it an annual event for our very good cause”.
Martyn Gray, general manager of PureGym said,
”We are proud to help local causes and the Moira Fund fits the bill. We were lucky enough to lend our support to the Moira Run in Queens Park last year and will be doing this again next month. Additionally this year we held the Moira Cycle in our club to raise more money for the support of families effected by murder. It is an honour to help this cause and we will continue to put our full backing behind it going forward.”
