Cycling, Running & Eating...Fundraising in 2016!

Since the summer we have run a number of very fun and very successful events raising funds to keep us on the air and serving the community in our Coffee Lounge. 

Back in July our annual bike ride spanning 40 miles around North West Leicestershire visited some of the fantastic attractions and countryside we're lucky enough to have right here in our district.  With stops at Sence Valley Forest Park, St Joseph's Tea Rooms in Whitwick, Ferrer's Centre and Hick's Lodge amongst others, the sun shone for us once again and we finished the day with a barbeque in Memorial Square.  We are delighted to have raised £561!

In September former presenter and Coffee Lounge volunteer, Chris Martin, took to the streets of Newcastle-upon-Tyne dressed as Buzz Lightyear completing the Great North Run in 2 hours and 29 minutes.  Chris raised a fantastic £219!

Thanks to La Torre of Coalville, we hosted a delicious Italian meal with live music from singer Jayne Haywood.  With very generous donations for a grand raffle, we raised £630!

A big thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way and we hope to see you at another fundraiser soon!
