A group of Partners from Cheltenham took to their wheels last month and raised £1,200 for Gloucestershire Young Carers by cycling 53 miles around Gloucester.
The team raised more than £600 in one day alone, by fundraising outside the branch prior to the cycle ride and family and friends donated generously to the Partners’ Justgiving page, to double the total.
The bike ride took place in three stages, Cheltenham to Cirencester, Cirencester to Stroud and Stroud back to Cheltenham and the cyclists were welcomed in each destination at the local Waitrose branch.
The money will be used to give restbite to their carers and have planned a day out and a Christmas party for them.
