We are thrilled to announce that the 'On Your Bike' charity cycle ride organised by Gravesham with Ebbsfleet Rotary in May was a tremendous success, raising over £5,000 for various charitable causes.
President Arlene Orr expressed her gratitude to the 430 riders who participated from all over the South East on the three cycling routes from Gravesend riverside.
“A big thank you to all the riders, generous sponsors, dedicated volunteers, and the local community for their unwavering support. We are delighted to inform you that all the donations, sponsorships, and gift aid have been received,” she added.
The primary beneficiary is Alzheimer's and Dementia Support Services that continues to face an increasing number of support calls. They are currently establishing a network of dementia co-ordinators across Kent. Additionally, other local Rotary-supported charities will also benefit from the funds raised.
We are proud that 'On Your Bike' has been organised by Rotary for 35 years, contributing a remarkable £600,000 to local and Rotary charities.
Mark your calendars for the next 'On Your Bike' which will take place on
Sunday, 19 May, 2024.
Thank you once again to everyone involved in making this event a resounding success. Together through your wheelpower, Rotary is making a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
