WE meet every Tuesday and are made up of 39 senior members and 22 junior members, all aged 10 to 26.
We do a lot of fund-raising. In June we did a sponsored 25-mile bike ride in aid of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance and raised £2,224 through sponsorship.
We cycled in a big loop, going through different villages, including Rotherfield Peppard, Checkendon, Woodcote, Sonning and Binfield Heath, in two hours and 45 minutes in the rain, using roads and muddy tracks.
We had one puncture and one bike finished with only one pedal but everyone enjoyed the ride.
We have now raised a total of £2,504.67 for the air ambulance this year with other activities including a coconut shy at the Henley Show and carol singing.
We presented the cheque at our club’s annual meeting on Tuesday, October 4. This year we have also raised £1,007 for Footsteps Foundation in Wallingford and about £200 for Macmillan from bonfire night.
