Local lads to cycle the length of Great Britain for charities

Four local lads are set to cycle 1,515 kilometres from Land’s End, Cornwall to John O’Groats, Scotland in August.

Harry Kitchin, Tom Clifton, Sam Boreham and Matt Jefferies, all from Newbury and Thatcham, will be raising much-needed cash for these four charities:

  • The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, which helps young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
  • International Rescue Committee UK, which helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict.
  • Alzheimer’s Research, the leading dementia and Alzheimer’s disease research charity.
  • CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), who are leading a huge movement against suicide.

The four are busy training in the lanes and roads of West Berkshire. Along their big route, they’ll be climbing some 13,000 metres, so they’ll need to be in top form.

The long-planned venture had been in doubt due to the pandemic. However, the recent softening of the lockdown rules means that the big trip can go ahead.

The lads are asking locals for sponsorship. If you can help, please visit their fund-raising page by following the link below:
