Rugby charity cyclists stop off during ride

A TEAM of charity cyclists visited Henley on Friday.

The riders from rugby charity Wooden Spoon and courier company TNT were cycling from Rugby, where the game was invented, to Twickenham to raise money for disabled children.

They stopped off at Mill Meadows to visit the Rivertime Boat Trust, a charity which offers river cruises for disabled and disadvantaged children and adults. They also met Harlequins and former London Irish player Nick Kennedy, who will join the team on the final leg of the challenge on Saturday.

Team leader Jai Purewal, from Wooden Spoon, said: “We are stopping off at different grassroots clubs and projects along the way.

“We have cyclists from the different divisions of TNT as well as Wooden Spoon members, friends and family. We are picking up people along the way and should have about 35 people by the time we arrive at Twickenham.
