Tuesday, 22 April 2014
COMING TO SEATON: Maurice and Susan
Two cyclists from Shoreham-by-Sea in Sussex will stop off in Seaton during a 12-day challenge in aid of Lions International Blood Research Appeal (LIBRA) – a charity which helps to tackle blood cancers. Susan Saunders (president of Adur East Lions Club) and her partner Lion Maurice Allen will cycle more than 420 miles in 12 days – starting in Shoreham-by-Sea and finishing in Dover. Their challenge begins today (April 22nd) and two legs will involve Seaton. On April 25th they will cycle from Exeter to Seaton, covering 26 miles, with an overnight stay. The following day they will ride from Seaton to Dorchester, adding another 43 miles to their journey. Susan said: “We estimate we will cover more than 400 miles so we are putting in lots of training. “Our activity programme includes spinning classes in the gym and cycling at least once each week. “We are encouraging fellow Lions members and cycling groups from Seaton and the other areas on our route to join us along the way. “We decided to pass through Seaton as it has some beautiful scenery. “Maurice and I chose to support LIBRA as it is such a special Lions charity and it really helps to save lives. “I think we should all help to raise awareness about blood disorders, research and the development of new treatments. “We know that Seaton Lions Club is very supportive of our challenge and we are most grateful.” If you would like to sponsor Susan and Maurice, visit their Virgin Money Giving page at virginmoneygiving.com/team/adureastlions To arrange to cycle part of the route, email Susan at susan_ email@example.com
