On Sunday September 5th at the Middlesbrough Sports Village over 50 fundraising cyclists aboard a wide variety of cycles pedalled around the one-kilometre tarmac track. Well over 1,000 kms were covered and a goodly sum raised (it’s still being counted). Erimus Rotary had made available the excellent facilities to all of our local charities for whom Covid has seen a drastic fall in fundraising opportunities. President Alan Clifton of Erimus thanked all participants and expressed the hope that this would be the foundation of a regular annual event. The club now plans to explore using the Sports Village for a major parasporting event in 2022 .
